WIELAND completed Phase I of Graphic Packaging International’s Kalamazoo campus in October 2021. The original plant spans 300,000 SF and contains K2, a four-story paper machine, which produces over 1,400 tons of the highest quality recycled paperboard per day. K2 is a coated recycle board machine (CRB) that will produce high quality paperboard with the lowest caliper-capabilities in North America.
After the completion of Phase I, renovations and addition to the existing campus were also done. WIELAND began work on Phase II in February 2022. Improvements included new corporate headquarters, parking spaces, paving, landscaping, and fencing. Additionally, an employee entrance was installed, and the existing K1 tunnel entrance was remodeled. The renovations were completed after six months in July 2022.
