August 13, 2013

This new plant in Wisconsin will be the sixth in twelve years for the company.

Summer Industries, a manufacturer of paper tubes, cores, and cans made from 100% recycled paperboard, has announced that it is opening a plant in Neenah, WI, USA. The new plant marks the sixth plant opening in twelve years for the company. With headquarters in North Carolina, Summer Industries also has plants in Florida, Mississippi, New York and North Carolina.

Summer Industries, an independent manufacturer of spiral wound tubes, cores, and canisters made from 100% recycled paperboard, serves a variety of industries in the eastern half of the United States, including manufacturers and converters of papers, films, pressure sensitive tapes and labels, metal, foil, strapping, roofing, nonwovens and other textiles.  The Neenah plant represents an investment of over $1.5 million, and will create more than 20 new manufacturing jobs when the plant is in full operation. Fox Valley industry veterans Peter Emenecker, general manager, and Scott Meyer, operations manager, comprise the leadership team of the new facility.

“We were fortunate to attract top industry talent to lead the Neenah operation,” says Summer Industries Vice President Anthony Patterson. “Peter and Scott are men of character, with a commitment to excellence in whatever they undertake. They understand this market, and have a proven track record for growing the business.  This makes them a perfect fit to bring the core values of Summer Industries to the Fox Valley.”

Peter Emenecker adds, “Summer Industries is among the most respected and successful companies in our industry, with a proprietary manufacturing platform beyond anything we’ve seen before. Scott and I are excited to combine this with our deep knowledge of the local market and common commitment to world class service.”
