The scenery looks a lot different driving down North Black Branch Road these days. That’s because construction on the $114 million Kruger Packaging E’town Plant is now complete. Measuring 400,000+ square feet, the state-of-the-art facility is now open and production of corrugated paper – that will soon be turned into our award-winning boxes – is underway.
“The transformation is simply stunning,” John Keith, Kruger Packaging E’town General Manager, said. “In less than one year, what once was an undeveloped plot of land is now home to the most advanced, cutting-edge manufacturing facility in North America. All of us on the Kruger team are ready to hit the ground running and help deliver sustainable packaging solutions for Kentucky businesses big and small.”
All total, the Kruger Packaging E’town Plant took more than 280 construction days to complete and is composed of 26,000 cubic yards of concrete. A ribbon cutting ceremony will be held in the coming months to celebrate the momentous milestone.
