April 18, 2019 – Cascades has inaugurated its newest and most modern containerboard packaging plant, a US$76-million investment in state-of-the-art equipment.

Elected officials, members of the community and Cascades partners, clients, suppliers and employees attended the official opening.

Located in Piscataway, New Jersey, the new plant is 450,000 square feet. With 170 employees, the facility makes corrugated packaging using some of the fastest, most modern equipment in the world. With an annual production capacity of 2.4 billion square feet, the operation will allow Cascades to increase its internal integration of parent roll production.

"The inauguration of this significant investment highlights our commitment to both the modernization of our asset base, and the consolidation of our containerboard and packaging activities in the Northeastern U.S.," says Mario Plourde, Cascades president and chief executive officer. "It also represents a continuation of the important projects that we have carried out in recent years, including the Greenpac Mill in New York State and the Oregon tissue converting facility. With a strategic location in the heart of the markets we serve, the plant will allow us to pursue our growth strategy in the U.S. I am also pleased to note that the project was delivered both under budget and on time.

In tandem with other Cascades plants, the new facility will supply lighter packaging to traditional and e-commerce markets, says Charles Malo, president and chief operating officer of Cascades Containerboard Packaging.
