Cascades Opens New Tissue Converting Facility in Oregon, US

Packaging and tissue products manufacturer Cascades has opened its new $64m tissue converting plant in Scappoose, Oregon, US.

The 284,000ft² facility has converting lines, high speed rewinders and folders, and bath lines..

It manufactures towel and tissue products under the Cascades PRO brand, which offers a range of hygiene solutions.

Products such as hand towels, bathroom tissue, napkins, kitchen roll towels, facial tissue, wipers and dispensers will also be produced at the facility.

The facility’s development was supported by the State of Oregon, Colombia County, the City of Scappoose and Cascades’ employees and suppliers..

Cascades president and CEO Mario Plourde said: "This new facility extends the breadth of our national coverage, and will enable us to better serve our customers in the southern and western United States.

“The Scappoose facility will also allow us to increase our converting capacity and integration rate as we will be using tissue paper produced at our St-Helens plant located just eight miles away.

“Our new facility will have a production capacity of nearly six million cases per year of virgin and recycled bathroom tissue products and paper hand towels. It also offers possibilities for future expansion."

Cascades Tissue Group president and CEO Jean Jobin said: " The completion of this project marks an important milestone for Cascades. “This world-class facility is the first step in our plan to modernize our tissue manufacturing and converting equipment and a clear indication of our commitment to this segment.”

Cascades produces, converts and markets packaging and tissue products that are composed mainly of recycled fibres.

The company employs 11,000 people, who work in nearly 90 production units situated in North America and Europe.
