Atlantic Packaging Products Ltd., a Toronto-based manufacturer of containerboard and corrugated packaging products, says it will add a recycled paper machine in Whitby, Ontario, to produce 400,000 tons per year of light-weight medium and liner. Production is scheduled to begin in the first quarter of 2022, according to a news release from the company.

The new paper machine will be Atlantic's second recycled paper machine in Whitby. It is being built adjacent to the current machine, which has been operational since the 1990s. Atlantic describes the new machine as one of the most technologically advanced machines in North America.

Atlantic Packaging Products reopened the Whitby mill in 2013 after converting production from newsprint to light-weight medium for use in the production of corrugated containers.
