Georgia-Pacific says it’s investing more than $500 million at its Green Bay, Wisconsin, Broadway mill, which should generate about 150 jobs.
Investments to the mill include building a new paper machine using through-air-dried technology and adding associated converting equipment and infrastructure.
Engineering work is beginning immediately, with startup of the new machine scheduled for the first half of 2024, the company said.
About 150 jobs will be generated to operate the new complex, which is in addition to the mill’s 850 current employees. The project will have as many as 500 construction and contract-related workers onsite during the project timeline, the company said.
“This truly is an investment in our customers and consumers who value the quality of our products,” said Christian Fischer, Georgia-Pacific president and CEO. “We appreciate the local community, Brown County, state officials and all of our employees’ hard work and efforts to continue making our Green Bay Broadway mill more competitive for the long-term.”
Capital investments at the company’s Green Bay facilities have equaled more than $700 million in the past 15 years, Georgia-Pacific said.
