Cascades Rolls Out West

With presently more than 2,200 employees and 20 production units, Cascades is rolling out west as part of an exciting expansion of the company's professional services division, Cascades PROTM, allowing for a much wider distribution across North America.

The nearly 300,000 square foot modern and automated tissue converting plant is set to open in Scappoose, Oregon at the end of the second quarter of 2017. With a production capacity of five million cases, the new plant will manufacture virgin and recycled bathroom tissue products and paper hand towels for Cascades PROTM. Conveniently located only eight miles from the Cascades tissue paper plant in St. Helens, the new plant will enable Cascades to efficiently transport jumbo rolls for converting.

This $64 million dollar investment will include state-of-the-art converting lines, providing an increased converting capacity that will improve Cascades coverage of the West Coast.

Further increasing the brands' presence in North America is Cascades recent majority position in Longhorn Paper Converting, a towel and tissue converting plant in Grand Prairie, Texas. Given the expansive population of the southern states, this plant is a key to better serving southern United States customers. Its strategic location will aid in fostering synergies and enhance Cascades' integration rate in the region by converting parent rolls manufactured in other Cascades plants.

The expansion comes on the heels of the company's rebranding campaign which unveiled a brand new name for their former Away-From-Home division – now known as Cascades PROTM. Additionally, the company has adopted a new tagline, All clean. All goodTM, as well as a new website, www.cascadespro.com, new brand pillars and a streamlined product line. The company has pledged to go out of their way to make the public spaces they are a part of, places that everyone can feel good about.

Serving customers on a national scale and helping people feel good, with proven hygiene solutions has been a long-term goal for Cascades. This expansion into key markets in the southern and western United States will help the company deliver even greater quality and flexibility to American customers coast-to-coast.
