The upgrade of GP’s Muskogee plant will also include a new production line

Georgia-Pacific (GP) has announced it will invest $50m to upgrade its Muskogee, Oklahoma-based bath tissue, towel and napkin manufacturing facility.

Updates at the 640-acre site will take place over the next three years and will add to equipment and will also include a new production line.

A GP spokeswoman told TWM: “The amount and upgrades referenced are an aggregate of several investment projects during the next two years. “We are not sharing any additional details about the projects.”

Amy Borovich, Muskogee Mill Facility Leader, added: “These investments will help Georgia-Pacific continue our focus on transforming manufacturing equipment and processes that result in better employee safety, environmental performance, reliability and quality.”

The Muskogee mill makes bath tissue, paper towels and napkins for the retail and AfH markets.
