Pratt Industries, headquartered in Conyers, Georgia, has unveiled its fourth 100-percent-recycled paper mill in the United States, with a grand opening celebration Thursday, March 31, 2016, at the Valparaiso, Indiana, facility.
The recycled paper mill started production the first week of October 2015. It represents the single largest investment the company has ever made in the U.S.
The $260 million, 250,000-square-foot paper mill is adjacent to the company’s existing corrugated box factory. Pratt Industries says the recycled box plant is the largest box plant in the world, while the new paper mill is “the most modern in the world,” said Pratt Chairman Anthony Pratt during an afternoon ceremony in Valparaiso for the mill’s grand opening.
