Irving Consumer Products has invested in a 75,000 tonne state-of-the-art tissue plant to be constructed in Macon, Georgia.
The machine is expected to start-up in 2019 and will double the company’s ThruAir Dry capacity.
President Robert K. Irving said: “Selecting Macon for our new facility provides us with an opportunity to establish a footprint in a region that has proven itself as being a strong supporter of business.
“It will allow us to reach key markets, and will help to continue to drive our growth.”
Engineering and planning for the facility is well underway and construction will begin this summer.
