The Albany-Dougherty Economic Development Commission in Albany, Georgia, has announced Pratt Industries plans to invest more than $18 million in an expansion in the community.
According to a news release from the Albany-Dougherty Economic Development Commission, Atlanta-based Pratt Industries has operated a converting plant for corrugated boxes in Albany since 1983. The facility takes in 100 percent recycled-content corrugated sheet and linerboard to convert them to finished boxes.
The company will be adding 100,000 square feet to that facility as well as upgrading its machinery, incorporating a new scrap recycling system, wastewater system and additional warehouse space. The expansion comes as a result of an increase in global shipping and logistics needs.
“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,” says Pratt Industries Albany Plant Manager Drew Pennington.
Pratt plans to complete the expansion by January 2022.
