MONTREAL - Recycled paper and packaging producer Cascades Inc. is looking to grow its West Coast tissue sales by spending $35 million to expand its plant in St. Helens, Ore. with the purchase of a paper machine, previously run by Boise in the same facility.
The machine for recycled paper will be converted to produce 55,000 tons of tissue paper annually to make hand towels and napkins.
The project will increase the plant's capacity to 120,000 tons and add 29 jobs to the existing workforce of 59. Start-up is planned for the fourth quarter of 2014.
