It will be creating more than 150 jobs and investing $400 million in a new manufacturing facility following the grand-opening of the company’s most recent plant in Macon.

This new announcement comes on the heels of the official opening of Irving Tissue’s newest plant in Macon, a $470 million project employing more than 200 people. The grand-opening for that facility took place in conjunction with the announcement of this new expansion.

Similar to the newly opened facility, this new plant will manufacture premium household paper products and create management, supervisory, and machinist positions in Macon.

Georgia Department of Economic Development (GDEcD) Project Manager Candice Scott represented the Global Commerce Division on this project in partnership with Georgia Power and the Macon-Bibb County Industrial Authority.
