Sustainable Corrugated will create 62 manufacturing jobs in Dalton-Whitfield County (GA)
ATLANTA — Sustainable Corrugated, a wholly owned subsidiary of Jackson Paper Manufacturing Co., will create 62 jobs and invest $15 million into a corrugated sheets manufacturing facility in Dalton-Whitfield County.
“We are happy to welcome Jackson Paper’s supplementary operation, Sustainable Corrugated,” said GDEcD Commissioner Chris Carr. “We are delighted that Jackson Paper has experienced much success in Georgia, and we look forward to working with them as they continue to build upon their positive reputation here.”
Based in Sylva, North Carolina, parent company, Jackson Paper, is the state’s largest manufacturer of 100 percent recycled paper. The paper is made entirely from used brown boxes, thereby diverting more than 120,000 tons from landfills. Sustainable Corrugated will use the recycled paper from Sylva as a raw material in the manufacturing of new corrugated sheets. This operation will serve independent box makers throughout North Georgia, Eastern Tennessee and North Alabama from a brand new 150,000-square-foot building.
