Georgia-Pacific To Invest $50 Million In Louisiana Production Facility
Georgia-Pacific LLC, parent company of GP PRO, has announced plans to invest more than $50 million in its Port Hudson mill in Zachary, LA. The expansion project will include upgrades to increase capacity and improve the capability of existing paper converting equipment and enhance internal infrastructure.
Construction has begun on these enhancements and is expected to be completed by mid-2023. The improvements will allow for expansion of Georgia-Pacific’s own paper towel offerings and additional support for its private label production.
“This truly is an investment in our customers and consumers who value the quality of our products,” Vivek Joshi, president of Georgia-Pacific’s retail tissue, towel, and napkin business, said. “It also allows us to further leverage the many advantages we have, including our breadth of offerings, excellence in manufacturing operations, commitment to quality, and focus on research and development to create products that consumers value.”
