Cascades Inc. is going to build a new plant in Piscataway (New Jersey), which will manufacture corrugated packaging products and create 120 jobs. The total annual production capacity of the plant will be 2.4 billion sq ft. The company will invest USD 80 million for the construction of the plant.
The Piscataway conversion plant will have state-of-the-art technology and will be among the fastest in the industry. It will offer increased flexibility and allow the company to provide more efficient and innovative products to meet the customers’ needs. Located close to the major urban centers along the eastern seaboard of the United States, the site was also chosen because it has room for subsequent development.
Also, the company is going to close its packaging plant in Maspeth, New York, by December 31, 2018 as the site has reached its physical limits.
