— Michael Lafave, Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, Kruger Packaging
“Anticipating that the demand for newsprint would continue to decline while the containerboard market would keep on expanding due to e-commerce, Kruger had to invest to ensure the future growth and sustained success of its Kruger Packaging division, all while consolidating hundreds of jobs in its newsprint sector.”
“Kruger’s $250 million modernization project consisted of the rebuild of the Trois-Rivières mill’s no. 10 paper machine to manufacture extra high-performance, 100% recycled linerboard. It paved the way for significant growth for the Trois-Rivières operation, which produced newsprint for over 25 years before its transformation in the spring of 2017.”
