Visy opens corrugated box facility in Queensland, Australia

Up to 1 million boxes will be made each day at Visy's new corrugated cardboard box factory in Hemmant, Queensland.

The state-of-the-art factory is part of Visy Executive Chairman Anthony Pratt's commitment to invest $2 billion over the next decade - $700 million of that in Queensland--to reduce landfill, cut emissions and create thousands of green collar Australian manufacturing jobs.

Visy Executive Chairman Anthony Pratt says: "The Queensland Government has created a great business environment for manufacturers to invest and grow in Queensland. We've invested $175 million to build the most productive and technically advanced corrugated box making facility in the country. We've installed the latest 2.8m wide corrugator - the most modern corrugator in the southern hemisphere."

Following completion of the factory, Visy now proudly employs more than 1000 Queenslanders.

Visy is a leading, privately owned packaging and resource recovery company, with more than 120 sites across Australia, New Zealand and Thailand and trading offices across Asia, Europe and the USA.
