Hanover, Pennsylvania based Ox Industries announced that it has acquired a 150,000-square-foot facility in Hanover to expand its converting capacity in the Mid-Atlantic Region. The facility will house next-generation equipment and manufacturing practices and expand Just-in-Time (JIT) stocking products and services.
“We are excited to expand our Hanover location and to continue to invest in the community where we originally started Ox,” said CEO Kevin Hayward. “This is part of a $15 million investment in Hanover that will vertically integrate with our 100 percent recycled paperboard mills and create 50 new green-collar jobs.”
Ox Industries is one of the the largest independently owned, vertically integrated producer of paperboard, specialty paper, tube & core, and protective packaging products. The company operates four recycled paper mills and seven converting plants in nine states.
The company was founded in 1996 as Ox Paper Tube & Core with just a handful of employees. The company has grown to over 500 employees with multiple mills and converting facilities across the country.
One of those facilities is the Halltown Mill in Halltown, West Virginia. Started in 1869, it was originally a paper mill until it became an operational paper board mill.
