Atlanta, Georgia based Georgia-Pacific reported that is investing more than $20 million at its plant in Lebanon, Tennessee. Its existing corrugator will be replaced with a new one to provide more throughput and a better-quality product for customers.
“This is as much an investment in our current and future customers as it is in our Lebanon operations,” said Rob Streeter, Georgia-Pacific’s Area General Manager. “This new technologically advanced corrugator will give us the ability to supply the independent and integrated box and display customers throughout the mid-South, with upgraded offerings such as two-sided high-quality print, including Georgia-Pacific’s Hummingbird digital print, on a variety of fluting options for the converted board.”
The project will be conducted in phases through 2023 while the existing corrugator continues to operate. The planned startup of the new unit will be sometime in the first half of 2024. The Lebanon plant started up by Georgia-Pacific in 1993 and employs 75. It serves customers in Tennessee, Mississippi, Georgia, Kentucky, Alabama, Illinois, Arkansas, North Carolina and South Carolina.
