Pratt Industries Expands Albany, Georgia, Plant
The expansion comes as a result of an increase in global shipping and logistics needs, and will include an addition of over 100,000 square feet to Pratt’s existing facility, Albany-Dougherty Economic Development Commission officials noted. Upgrades will include new machinery, new scrap recycling system, waste water system and additional warehouse space.
“We have been proud to call Albany home for the last 38 years and are excited to be continuing and strengthening our relationship with the local community,” said Pratt Industries Albany Plant Manager Drew Pennington. Pratt’s expansion is expected to be complete by January 2022.
Albany’s sheet converting plant is one of Pratt’s more than 40 facilities throughout the United States and Mexico, the world’s largest converting network, tasked with converting corrugated paper board into finished boxes.
“Pratt is a key contributor in the global logistics industry, as one of the world’s largest producers of recycled containerboard. Their continued investment in our community reaffirms Albany-Dougherty County as an ideal location for manufacturing and logistics industries, and we are proud to have Pratt as a corporate citizen here in our community,” said ADEDC President and CEO Jana Dyke.
Pratt Industries is a leading manufacturer of sustainable corrugated packaging and display solutions. The company is America’s fifth largest corrugated packaging company and the world’s largest, privately-held 100% recycled paper and packaging company, with more than 7,500 employees.
