Packaging and hygiene products producer Cascades officially opened its new, $76 million containerboard packaging plant in Piscataway, NJ on Thursday at an inauguration event attended by government and company officials and members of the community. 

Featuring a production capacity of 2.4 billion sq ft/yr, the 450,000-sq-ft facility enables Cascades to further its efforts to integrate parent roll production, the company said in a press release announcing the site’s opening. 170 jobs were created as a result of the project. 

“The Piscataway converting plant is equipped with cutting-edge technology that has already, in recent months, broken global production records. Beyond speed and efficiency, the equipment provides greater flexibility and will allow Cascades to offer increasingly high-performance, innovative products to meet the needs of our customers,” Charles Malo, president and chief operating officer of Cascades Containerboard Packaging said in a statement. “Thanks to synergy with other Cascades plants, this new facility will serve both traditional markets and e-commerce markets that require lighter packaging.”

Cascades decided to open the facility in New Jersey because of its strategic location near the its major markets, company officials said, and the move assists the firm in consolidating its containerboard and packaging activities in the northeastern U.S.
