PaperWorks expands paperboard mill in Indiana, US

PKBR Staff Writer Published 08 January 2018

PaperWorks Industries, a provider of recycled paperboard and specialized folding cartons for packaging applications, has expanded its paperboard mill located in Wabash, Indiana, US with a new $3m warehouse facility.

The new 44,500ft² warehouse facility, which is scheduled to be commissioned during the first quarter of 2018, will be capable of storing up to 7,000 tons of coated recycled board (CRB) rolls.

PaperWorks president and CEO Andy Bolton said: "Over the past three years, PaperWorks has invested more than $60m to upgrade its paperboard mills and folding carton converting plants.

“This latest investment is designed to lower costs, improve service and reduce our environmental footprint at this location.”

PaperWorks said that the new facility will be serviced more efficiently with reduced environmental footprint.

The mill is equipped to produce PaperWorks' recently launched MasterWorks Ultra 100 line, as well as other CRB grades.

Engineered as a cost-effective, 100% recycled alternative to virgin grades, the MasterWorks Ultra 100 line includes three CRB kraftback grades including Kraftback (general folding carton use), Kraftback Beverage (treated to provide tear strength for beverage applications) and Kraftback Freeze (moisture resistance for refrigerator or freezer applications).

In October 2017, PaperWorks purchased sheet-fed lithographic press for installation at its facility in Greensboro, North Carolina.

PaperWorks Industries is engaged in providing recycled paperboard and specialized folding cartons for packaging applications.
