Kruger Products to Invest $55 Million in New Tissue Machine at Its Crabtree Mill
(Canada, July 25, 2016) Kruger Products L.P. today announced it is investing $55 million to add a new tissue machine at its Crabtree Plant, in the Lanaudière region of Quebec, Canada. The project will increase the plant’s overall production by approximately 20,000 metric tonnes annually and will help to consolidate approximately 600 jobs.
According to Kruger, the investment was made possible due to a $39.5-million loan from Investissement Québec, which is acting as an agent of the Government of Québec in this project.
The No. 8 Paper Machine (PM8), which will produce tissue products primarily for the away-from-home market, will be installed in a new building that will soon be under construction.
PM8 is expected to be commissioned by end of summer 2017.
