Pratt Paper Mill, Society of Innovators Member 2016-2017


Pratt Paper Mill in Valparaiso is the newest and most cost competitive paper mill in the container industry in North America. This innovative $260 million state-of-the-art facility is a 100 percent recycled paper facility. By the official opening this past March, Pratt which employs 120 people, was producing at more than 90 percent capacity, making it the best startup in Pratt history. Since 2000, Pratt has invested more than $500 million in Valparaiso, the site of the world’s largest corrugated box plant adjacent to the company’s fourth U.S. paper mill.
