Georgia-Pacific to Invest $110 Million at Alabama River Cellulose Mill
Oct 26 15
Georgia-Pacific has announced plans for $110 million in upgrades to its Alabama River Cellulose, or ARC, mill. The investments include replacing one of the mill's two existing wood yards that process incoming logs, upgrading the other wood yard and a major upgrade to one of the mill's machines that produce pulp. The investment in ARC follows more than $2.2 billion invested by Georgia-Pacific across Alabama in the last 10 years. The ARC project will allow the mill to better serve customer needs, stay competitive in a challenging industry, preserve jobs for Alabama residents and provide ongoing support to the local and state community. In fact, this $110 million investment further secures the mill's estimated $200 million contribution to the local economy through payroll, direct purchases and taxes, as well as indirectly through products and services purchased by employees. Work on the project is slated to begin early next year, and construction is expected to require approximately 65 people per day for 18 months.
