Cascades, a manufacturer of green packaging and tissue paper products, recently announced that investments of up to $750,000 will be made in its Enviropac Honeycomb Products of Michigan (HPM) plant located in Grand Rapids, Mich.
By the beginning of 2013, new equipment will be added to modernize the plant and optimize its overall efficiency from the competitiveness, quality and service standpoints. These investments will also allow jobs to be retained in the plant and its offices.
"These investments are directly in line with Cascades' key strategic axes to further support the operations with the ultimate goal of assuring the commercial success of our innovative, eco-designed products," said Simon Gosselin, general manager for the industrial packaging sector of Cascades Specialty Products Group.
