GREEN BAY– Senator Robert Cowles (R-Green Bay) released the following statement after Green Bay Packaging’s announcement to build a new $500 million facility in Northeast Wisconsin:
“Green Bay Packaging has been a central member of Wisconsin’s manufacturing industry for decades, and I am very excited about the company’s announcement to reinvest in our region for decades to come. Along with the hundreds of employees with family-sustaining earnings that will be retained and the 200 additional jobs the company is expected to create, Green Bay Packaging’s commitment to improving local air and water quality are proof that the company is not just investing in a new facility, but they’re investing in our community.
“This project, which will be the largest economic development project in Brown County history, will help our region continue to grow and transform. Green Bay Packaging could have built a new facility anywhere, but their recommitment to Northeast Wisconsin is just the latest example in a trend of new economic development projects proving that our state’s business climate is favorable and our workforce is strong.”
