Aug. 1, 2017 - Cascades has inaugurated its new 284,000-square-foot tissue converting facility in Scappoose, Ore.

“The Scappoose facility will also allow us to increase our converting capacity and integration rate as we will be using tissue paper produced at our St-Helens plant located just eight miles away,” said Mario Plourde, Cascades president and CEO, noting that it also “offers possibilities for future expansion.”

The new US$64-million plant — which manufactures towel and tissue products under the Cascades PRO brand — is equipped with “best-in-class converting lines, high-speed rewinders and folders, and one of the fastest bath lines in the world,” says Cascades.

The line includes hand towels, bathroom tissue, napkins, kitchen roll towels, facial tissue, wipers and dispensers. The plant is estimated to produce nearly six million cases per year of virgin and recycled bathroom tissue products and paper hand towels.

“The completion of this project marks an important milestone for Cascades,” said Jean Jobin, president and COO of the Cascades Tissue Group. “This world-class facility is the first step in our plan to modernize our tissue manufacturing and converting equipment and a clear indication of our commitment to this segment. We look forward to providing our customers with new exceptional value and to further grow our relationships within the local community.”
