Grand opening for new Printpack Rhinelander facility
Printpack, a member of the local business community for more than 25 years, will hold a grand opening for its new Rhinelander manufacturing facility Monday, Aug. 11. The event will feature a ribbon cutting ceremony and public tours of the new plant.
The new plant is part of Printpack’s aggressive reinvestment strategy to improve production efficiency. This location replaces Printpack’s existing Rhinelander facility with a 203,400 square foot building and state-of-the-art equipment. Printpack worked with the Wisconsin Governor’s Office as well as the Oneida County Economic Development Corporation and the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation to make the project a reality.
State and local dignitaries including Governor Scott Walker, Rhinelander Mayor Richard Johns, Rhinelander City Administrator Blain Oborn, Oneida County Economic Development Executive Director Roger Luce, State Representative Rob Swearingen and State Senator Tom Tiffany are expected to attend.
Chairman and CEO Dennis Love said, “Printpack has been pleased to be a part of the Rhinelander community for over 25 years, and we are excited about the new investment we are making there. This major commitment will provide our Rhinelander associates with the best technology available in our industry and put us on a path to continued success for years to come.”
The event will begin at 10:30 a.m. with a ribbon cutting ceremony followed by comments from Printpack Chairman and CEO Dennis Love, and Governor Scott Walker. The plant will be open to the public for tours from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Refreshments will be served.
Members of the public who wish to tour the facility are asked to RSVP via Printpack’s website, printpack.com or Facebook page facebook.com/PrintpackInc.
