Cascades Inc. (TSX: CAS), a leader in the recovery and manufacturing of green packaging and tissue products, recently rolled out West as part of an exciting expansion of the company’s Professional Services Division, Cascades PRO™. To support a growing customer base, this expansion allows for a much wider distribution across North America, making the brand more accessible to both current and new customers.

On July 18th, Cascades celebrated the grand opening of its new 284,000 square foot automated tissue converting plant in Scappoose, Oregon, with an event and ribbon cutting ceremony attended by the Governor of Oregon, Kate Brown, local dignitaries, members of the local community, as well as Cascades’ partners, customers, suppliers and employees.

The Scappoose facility is equipped with best-in-class converting lines, high-speed rewinders and folders, and one of the fastest bath lines in the world. It is vertically integrated with the Cascades tissue paper plant in St. Helens, just a few miles away. The new facility, which boasts a production capacity of nearly six million cases, manufactures virgin and recycled bathroom tissue products and paper hand towels for Cascades PRO.

Serving customers on a national scale has been a long-term goal for Cascades PRO. Through the Scappoose plant, it can meet the needs of its customers on a larger scale and deliver even greater quality and flexibility from New York to California.

Stop by Booth #3931 and let Cascades show you how they can deliver proven, cost-effective hygiene solutions – from bathroom to boardroom to lunchroom to classroom and beyond – with a wide range of product lines that can help you get the job done.
