Irving Consumer Products breaks ground on new tissue production plant in Macon, Georgia

MACON, Georgia -- Irving Consumer Products broke ground on the construction of their new $400 million state-of-the-art tissue plant in Macon, Georgia.

"We're excited to begin construction on this new plant. The plant will create over 200 permanent, skilled jobs and allow us to continue to meet our customers' growing demands," said Robert K. Irving, President of Irving Consumer Products. "It will also provide growth in our home province. The pulp will be from Irving Woodlands, manufactured at our New Brunswick pulp mill."

The new plant will produce ultra-premium quality household paper products including soft bath tissue and high quality paper towel that is both strong and absorbent.

Construction will be completed in 2019 and is estimated to provide 1 million person hours of work. At the height of construction, over 540 people will be working on-site.
