Georgia-Pacific has announced plans to upgrade its Port Hudson mill in Zachary, Louisiana. The company will invest $50 million to improve the capacity and capability of its equipment, as well as enhance internal infrastructure. The mill currently produces bath tissue and paper towels, and Georgia-Pacific believes the investment will allow for the expansion of its own paper towel offerings, while also growing its customers' premium private label brands.

In a recent quote, Vivek Joshi, president of the retail tissue, towel and napkin business for Georgia-Pacific, said, "This truly is an investment in our customers and consumers who value the quality of our product. It also allows us to further leverage the many advantages we have, including our breadth of offerings, excellence in manufacturing operations, commitment to quality and focus on research and development to create products that consumers value."
