Wisconsin corrugated plant to open by end of year

Packaging Corporation of America (PCA) recently celebrated the start of construction of its new full-line corrugated plant in Marshfield, Wisconsin. The new plant will replace the existing plant in nearby Colby, Wisconsin. Many of that plant’s long-time employees will continue to work at Marshfield, which is about 20 miles from Colby. The new facility is scheduled for completion later this year.

Attendees at the official groundbreaking included PCA management; the mayor of Marshfield and other city officials; the builders of the new facility; and employees from the Colby plant, who were transported on coach buses to Marshfield for the event.

PCA Executive Vice President Tom Hassfurther addressed the audience and participated with others in a ceremonial groundbreaking. The event also included lunch served inside a warming tent.

According to plant General Manager Mike Conley: “It was important to me to have all the employees at the groundbreaking. Having the whole team present was very special.”
