The 640-acre Oklahoma mill produces a variety of paper products, including bath tissue, paper towels, and napkins. The upgrade project will add new production lines and robotics and enhance the safety, reliability, and efficiency of operations, the Muskogee Phoenix reports. Georgia-Pacific anticipates the entire expansion project will take approximately three years to complete.
“These investments will help Georgia-Pacific continue our focus on transforming manufacturing equipment and processes that result in better employee safety, environmental performance, reliability and quality,” said Amy Borovich, Georgia-Pacific facility leader for the Muskogee plant. “We appreciate the support from all of our Muskogee community partners, including the Muskogee City-County Port Authority, city of Muskogee, and the City of Muskogee Foundation.”
