CONSTRUCTION

Construction of the Greenpac Mill began in the summer of 2011. After several months of demolition and excavation, the foundations were cast, the steel structure was erected, and the roof and walls were built. During the construction of the outer shell of the building, several pieces of equipment were installed inside. More than 300 workers worked every day on the construction site for the mill to be ready to manufacture its first linerboard roll on July 15, 2013.
