Green Bay Packaging Inc. will begin construction of a new 600,000-square-foot corrugator plant in Fort Worth, Texas. Construction on the site is set to begin in the first quarter of 2022 and startup operation is scheduled for the second quarter of 2023.
The new “super-plant” will be replacing GBP’s current 200,000-square-foot corrugator plant in Fort Worth. GBP has operated a plant in Fort Worth for more than 50 years. The new plant will be equipped with a new 110-inch Fosber corrugator and all new high-speed flexo folder gluers and rotary die cutters.
Over the last 12 months, GBP completed the startup and full production of the Green Bay Recycled Paper Mill, startup of a 550,000 square foot box plant in Tulsa, Oklahoma; is in the process of a 370,000-square-foot expansion of its Folding Carton operation and is doubling the size of the newly acquired Third Dimension sheet plant, located in Geneva, Ohio. This is coming off expansions of its Green Bay and Minneapolis box plants, and the building of a new sales, marketing and distribution center in Downers Grove, Illinois.
