Georgia-Pacific is making a significant investment at its corrugated plant in Owosso, Michigan. Newer equipment will improve the plant's throughput and print capability.
The upgrades include a new corrugator, converter, single facer, preheater, glue machine, and control systems as well as an upgrade to the existing single facer and unitizer. By enabling the double wall capability, Owosso will be able to expand its customer base and provide expanded products to current customers.
The legacy corrugator was taken offline at the end of 2022.
Installation of the new equipment has begun and testing is projected to take place in February. The first production run should come off the line by the end of February.
The Owosso plant employs approximately 130 people. It was started by Olin Kraft in 1964 and purchased by Georgia-Pacific in 1985.
