Posted November 27, 2018
Cascades Inc. announces investment of $58 million in its Wagram plant in North Carolina that will modernize the plant and add new tissue converting equipment. The commissioning of the new converting lines is expected to begin in April 2019 and will be finalized in the 1Q 2020, as the company says in the press release received by Lesprom Network.

The project will involve the installation of five new state-of-the-art converting lines and the modernization of four existing lines. 66 full time employees will be hired to operate the new equipment, and an additional 50 temporary jobs will be created to prepare the building and install the equipment.

The Wagram plant produces hand towels, paper towels, bathroom tissue and napkins marketed under the Cascades PRO brand, which serves the Away-from-Home markets. The plant will be largely supplied by the Cascades tissue plant located 30 miles away, in Rockingham. Upon completion of the project, the Wagramplant converting capacity will increase from 5.3 million cases per year to close to 15 million cases per year, resulting in a global capacity addition of 3 million cases for the Group.

Founded in 1964, Cascades offers sustainable, innovative and value-added solutions for packaging, hygiene and recovery needs.
