Pratt Industries Plans Warner Robins, Georgia, Production Complex
The new 496,000-square-foot manufacturing facility will be located at Robins Industrial Park and will produce corrugated boxes using 100 percent recycled containerboard, largely sourced from the company’s mill in Conyers. Production is scheduled to begin in late 2024.
“We’re very honored to be coming to Warner Robins and we’re committed to the great State of Georgia – in fact, Georgia is where our company began,” said Anthony Pratt, Global Executive Chairman for Pratt Industries. “This will bring Pratt’s total workforce in Georgia to over 2,100 employees and 11,700 nationwide. Georgia has substantially grown its role as a regional hub for supporting businesses and manufacturing needs across the Southeast. We are excited to expand our operations in the region, allowing us to continue to strategically service our customers and grow the business.”
Pratt Industries is the fifth-largest corrugated packaging company in the U.S. and the largest privately owned producer of 100 percent recycled containerboard in the world. The company currently has 72 factories across 25 states.
“Georgia works closely with our existing industries and communities to support their long-term health. By investing in site preparation and obtaining GRAD certification, communities are better positioned to attract investments that create jobs aligned with their strategic goals,” noted GDEcD Commissioner Pat Wilson. “For decades, Pratt Industries has been an amazing partner for the state. Many thanks to the company for their continued growth and investment in Georgia, and to our local partners in Warner Robins and Peach County for their dedication to growing their existing industry base.”
Senior Project Manager John Soper represented the Georgia Department of Economic Development’s (GDEcD) Global Commerce team in partnership with the Development Authority of Peach County and Georgia Power.
