LEBANON, Tennessee , August 24, 2022 (press release) –

– Investing in our customers and communities. 

Georgia-Pacific is making a significant investment of more than $20 million at its plant in Lebanon, Tennessee. Its existing corrugator will be replaced with a new one to provide the plant with more throughput and provide customers with a better-quality product.

“This is as much an investment in our current and future customers as it is in our Lebanon operations,” said Rob Streeter, Georgia-Pacific’s area general manager. “This new technologically advanced corrugator will give us the ability to supply the independent and integrated box and display customers throughout the mid-South, with upgraded offerings such as two-sided high-quality print, including Georgia-Pacific’s Hummingbird® digital print, on a variety of fluting options for the converted board.”

The project will be conducted in phases through 2023 while the existing corrugator continues to operate. The planned startup of the new unit will be sometime in the first half of 2024.

Rich Fry, the Lebanon plant’s director of operations, added, “Our team works every day to make quality products and deliver for our customers, and we are excited for the investment in this state-of-the-art machine to continue that work.”

The Lebanon plant employs 75 people and was built and started up by Georgia-Pacific in 1993. It serves customers in Tennessee, Mississippi, Georgia, Kentucky, and Alabama, and even as far away as southern Illinois, western Arkansas, Missouri, eastern North Carolina and South Carolina.
