After breaking ground two and a half years ago, Green Bay Packaging produced the first reel of paper at its new paper mill.
According to officials, the construction of the new Green Bay Mill will preserve more than 1,100 Green Bay Packaging jobs across Brown County and over 1,500 jobs in Wisconsin.
“These are exciting times at Green Bay Packaging as we ramp up production on our new paper machine. This is the single biggest project in our company’s history, and It certainly would not have been possible without the tireless efforts of our internal people and our many partners and suppliers working together to turn this dream into reality,” commented Will Kress, Chairman and CEO of Green Bay Packaging.
