Graphic Packaging invited Channel 3’s Andy Dominianni to the Kalamazoo mill for a tour and interview with mill manager Tom Olstad. The focus of the interview was on the progress Graphic has made to reduce H2S emissions at the mill, and the steps the company continues to take to protect employees and neighbors.
As a major employer in Kalamazoo, we at Graphic Packaging recognize our duty to partner with the community when it comes being a good neighbor and we know it is more important now than ever as we work towards the completion of an expansion project.
In Kalamazoo, we are currently in the midst of a $600 million project to build a new mill that will improve the competitiveness of our local operations and help to ensure job security for employees at our Kalamazoo operations for years to come.
Graphic Packaging International’s plan to invest $600 million to build a new paperboard machine in Kalamazoo is at the heart of our company’s efforts to reduce our environmental impact and be a responsible corporate citizen.
Graphic Packaging has long recognized we are witnessing unparalleled changes in our industry and across our planet because of climate change and believes every company has a responsibility to minimize its impact on the environment. Consumers are more frequently insisting that products — and the packaging that protects them — come from a company they trust and which reflects their values.
