MONTREAL, QC — Norampac Inc., Canada’s largest containerboard maker, will spend $55 million to build a box plant in Vaughan, ON, a suburb north of Toronto. The 400 000 ft2 facility will be a high-performance conversion plant, which the company says “will streamline production and transportation costs and, thus, become the integrated plant with the lowest production costs in Canada.” It will contain equipment such as a BHS 110-in.-wide corrugator, which will allow it to manufacture various grades of premium quality fluted paper in as little as 24 hours. The mill plans to also add new conversion and printing equipment, which will create an automated plant design. The box plant is scheduled to become operational in the spring of 2001.
