February 7, 2023  By P&PC Staff

Cascades invested $9 million USD at its Piscataway, New Jersey, corrugated packaging converting facility, purchasing a new printing press.

“The purchase of an EVOL press, one of the fastest technologies in the world, will allow us to continue our growth in the Northeast and increase our ability to serve our current and future customers. This US$9 million investment is part of our 2022-2024 strategic plan and is aimed at increasing our integration rate by adding additional converting capacity in the United States,” said Mario Plourde, president and CEO of Cascades.

The Piscataway plant, started in 2018, currently serves the distribution and food processing markets. It is one of the newest and most modern in Cascades’ asset base. The purchase of this new press, the plant’s sixth, will increase production capacity by 17 percent, or the equivalent of 480 million square feet. The installation of the press will be completed by the end of April 2023.


Cascades is one of the largest containerboard producers in North America. It ranks 20th among the top 100 most responsible companies in the world according to the prestigious Global 100 ranking produced by Corporate Knights.

The Piscataway plant currently employs over 175 people and is one of the region’s top employers.
