Georgia-Pacific announced a kick-off of a new USD 50 million investment project to upgrade the Brewton mill’s paperboard machine. According to the announcement, slated to begin in late summer 2017, the project will rebuild part of the machine and will improve the quality of the mill’s white-top linerboard product and increase the mill’s competitiveness.
The Brewton mill produces white-top linerboard and solid bleached cartonboard. The mill is the largest employer in Brewton, with approximately 450 employees.
Earlier Georgia-Pacific completed a USD 388 million Brewton mill energy improvement project in the US.
The company has 13 plywood facilities across the United States, two of which are located in Madison and Warm Springs, Georgia. The company employs approximately 6,200 people directly in the state of Georgia, with approximately 450 people located at the Madison operations.
