Yazoo Mills invests in new manufacturing operations

March 17, 2014

The paper tubes and cores manufacturer has invested more than $4 million over the last 18 months.

Yazoo Mills, a familly-owned manufacturer of paper tubes and cores, says it has invested more than $4 million dollars in its manufacturing operations in an effort to sustain its current growth trend. 

"Over the past 18 months, we have been working diligently to make the necessary changes within our manufacturing operations," the company says. "We have invested in essential projects, plant infrastructure upgrades and additional production capacity."

A new 45,000 square foot distribution center was recently built in Hanover, PA, USA, giving Yazoo Mills a total of 195,000 square feet of manufacturing and distribution space for their product lines. With the infrastructure upgrades and remodeling, Yazoo was able to generate 20 local jobs and now employs more than 100 individuals.

A team of managers worked together to redesign and reengineer the existing production lines to improve efficiency and ergonomics throughout the company. Other projects that have since been completed are the additions of new printing capabilities, new packaging line equipment, innovative adhesive storage and distribution system, ERP systems, and upgrading to energy efficient lighting throughout the plant. The construction of an employee training center and 10 new office spaces were also incorporated in the list of remodels at Yazoo Mills.
