PCA Celebrates Groundbreaking for its New Box Plant in Wisconsin

Packaging Corporation of America recently celebrated the start of construction of its new full-line corrugated box plant in Marshfield, Wisconsin.

Attendees at the official groundbreaking included PCA management; the mayor of Marshfield and other city officials; the builders of the new facility; and employees from the nearby Colby plant, who were transported on coach buses to Marshfield for the event.

PCA Executive Vice President Tom Hassfurther addressed the audience and participated with others in a ceremonial groundbreaking. The event also included lunch served inside a warming tent.

PCA’s new, state-of-the-art plant will replace the existing plant in Colby. Many of that plant’s long-time employees will continue to work at Marshfield, which is about 20 miles from Colby.

According to plant General Manager Mike Conley, “It was important to me to have all the employees at the groundbreaking. Having the whole team present was very special.”

The new facility is scheduled for completion later this year.
