Pratt Industries has opened its new facility in Cedar Hill, Texas. The 100% recycled paper and packaging company invested $253 million into the project. The 1.1 million-square-foot plant employs 375 full-time employees. According to the company, the new facility will manufacture retail specialty products, corrugated boxes, and in-store displays. In an effort to improve the workforce pipeline in the area, Pratt Industries will sponsor a training/development program in collaboration with Cedar Hill and the school district.
In a recent quote, Anthony Pratt, executive chairman of Pratt Industries, said, “Recycling is an important weapon against climate change because as things decay in landfill they emit methane which is 84 times more potent as a greenhouse gas than carbon dioxide. So recycling is an important weapon against climate change.”
