In early March, Georgia-Pacific LLC, the parent company of GP PRO, has upgraded production at its production facility in Green Bay, Wisconsin.
The US$7 million expansion project added a new perforated roll towel (PRT) line, enhancing safety and increasing the plant’s production capabilities. The Green Bay property manufactures tissue and paper products for GP PRO and the company’s consumer brands.
“PRT is an essential cleaning tool that was surging in demand during 2020,” said Julie Howard, vice president and general manager of GP PRO’s towel, skin care, and air care categories. “It was aiding schools, hospitals, restaurants, and offices in becoming clean and safer for opening and operating.”
