The first reel of paper has rolled off the line at Green Bay Packaging Inc.’s new paper mill. The milestone comes 2.5 years after the $500-plus million project broke ground.
The construction and startup of the new Green Bay mill will preserve more than 1,100 Green Bay Packaging jobs across Brown County and over 1,500 jobs in Wisconsin.
Green Bay Packaging furthered its long-term commitment to Northeast Wisconsin and Green Bay by partnering with local companies to design and construct the facility, driving a significant regional economic impact. Neenah-based Miron Construction Co. Inc. served as the general contractor for the construction of the new mill, while Voith Paper in Appleton was chosen as the full-line equipment supplier for this project.
