Green Bay Packaging Inc. (GBP) will begin construction of a new 600,000 square foot corrugator plant in Fort Worth, Texas. Construction on the site is set to begin in the 1Q 2022 and startup operation is scheduled for the 2Q 2023, according to Lesprom Network.
The new “super-plant” will be replacing GBP’s current 200,000 square foot corrugator plant in Fort Worth. GBP has operated a plant in Fort Worth for over 50 years. The new plant will be equipped with a new 110” Fosber corrugator and all new state-of-the-art high-speed flexo folder gluers and rotary die cutters.
The Fort Worth announcement is another step in the continued growth and expansion of GBP. Over the last 12 months, GBP completed the startup and full production of the Green Bay Recycled Paper Mill, startup of a 550,000 square foot box plant in Tulsa, Ok.; is in the process of a 370,000 square foot expansion of its state of the art Folding Carton operation and is doubling the size of the newly acquired Third Dimension sheet plant, located in Geneva Ohio. This is coming off significant expansions of their Green Bay and Minneapolis box plants, and the building of a new sales, marketing and distribution center in Downers Grove, Illinois. They continue to install new high-speed converting and high-end graphic lines in multiple plants across the country.
