PaperWorks growing Wabash operation

January 8th, 2018

Pennsylvania-based PaperWorks Industries Inc. is growing its Indiana footprint. The company is investing $3 million to build a warehouse addition to its Wabash paperboard mill.

The 44,500-square-foot addition is expected to be operational during the first quarter of 2018. The company, which provides recycled paperboard and specialized folding cartons for packaging purposes, says the addition will have the capability of storing up to 7,000 tons of coated recycled board rolls.

"Over the past three years, PaperWorks has invested more than 60 million dollars to upgrade its paperboard mills and folding carton converting plants," said Andy Bolton, chief executive officer of PaperWorks. "This latest investment is designed to lower costs, improve service and reduce our environmental footprint at this location."

PaperWorks says having the warehouse adjacent to its production facility will create more efficiency for customers and reduce the company's costs and environmental footprint. The company previously used a third-party contractor to handle a large portion of its warehouse requirements.

Last April, PaperWorks invested $3.5 million to reduce energy consumption at the Wabash mill.
