Pratt Industries opened its newest corrugated box factory. According to the announcement, a USD 60 million investment project into 350,000 sq. foot facility in  Beloit, Wisconsin, USA will allow the company to produce 600 tons of 100 percent recycled boxes every day.

 

Anthony Pratt, Chairman, commented:

“This plant is only a punt kick away from the Chicago area, the world’s biggest box market.

We currently operate 68 factories and employ 7000 people and we want to continue to grow those numbers. Just here in the Midwest alone we’ve invested almost USD 500 million dollars since the beginning of 2015.”

Earlier Pratt Display purchased a fulfillment business from Ohio-based Quality Associates.
