The new facility was established as part of our commitment to innovate and increase corrugating and converting capacity in Victoria
Visy’s new corrugated packaging facility in Truganina was officially opened on April 9 by the Hon Daniel Andrews MP Premier of Victoria, Visy Executive Chairman Anthony Pratt and the Pratt family.
The guests who attended the opening including Visy management, customers and government delegates were also given a guided tour of the new facility.
The new facility was established as part of our commitment to innovate and increase corrugating and converting capacity in Victoria.
Building of the plant commenced in March last year and was fully commissioned by October.
The 36,500sqm $100 million state-of-the-art corrugated plant showcases some of the world’s most modern technology and employs 85 people across all shifts, including office personnel.
In his opening speech, Anthony Pratt said, “Manufacturing is important so we’re proud that this plant is adding a new generation of skills and workers to Australian manufacturing.”
The plant manufactures RSC and die-cut cartons and is capable of making over 1 million cartons each day.
Servicing all markets including beverage, packaged food, dairy, industrial, meat and fruit & produce, the new facility produces the best quality, performance and cost effective packaging to meet even more of our customers’ evolving needs.
A special mention goes out to the Project Team who worked tirelessly to bring this project to fruition, including Glenn Palmer, Ben Westaway, Steve Johansen, Steve Gadd, Scott Amiet, Peter Cleggett, the now retired Brett Johnstone, and the many others both internal and external to Visy.
