Canadian paper products manufacturer Cascades Inc. held a ceremony Tuesday to inaugurate its new 284,000-sq-ft tissue converting plant in Scappoose, OR, the company announced Tuesday.

“The completion of this project marks an important milestone for Cascades,” said Jean Jobin, president and chief operating officer of the Cascades Tissue Group, in a company press release. “It has long been our goal to expand our presence within the United States and offer greater flexibility for our customers. This world-class facility is the first step in our plan to modernize our tissue manufacturing and converting equipment and a clear indication of our commitment in this segment.”

Cascades’ Scappoose facility will manufacture Cascades PRO brand towel and tissue products, including hand towels, bathroom tissue, napkins, kitchen roll towels, facial tissue, wipers and dispensers.

“This new facility extends the bredth of our national coverage, and will enable us to better serve our customers in the southern and western United States. The Scappoose facility will also allow us to increase our converting capacity and integration rate as we will be using issue paper produced at our St-Helens plant located just eight miles away,” Cascades President and Chief Executive Officer Mario Plourde said in a statement.

The Cascade PRO products made at the facility are used in home and away-from-home markets.

“Our new facility will have a production capacity of nearly six million cases per year of virgin and recycled bathroom tissue products and paper hand towels. It also offers possibilities for future expansion,” said Plourde.
