Clearwater Paper Corp. To Acquire GPI Paperboard Facility In GA 

Atlanta, Georgia based Graphic Packaging Holding Company and Clearwater Paper Corporation announced that Graphic Packaging International has signed a definitive agreement to sell its Augusta, Georgia bleached paperboard manufacturing facility to Clearwater Paper of Spokane, Washington for $700 million.

“Augusta is an outstanding asset with a great team, which we concluded is a more compelling fit with Clearwater Paper’s strategic growth plans than our own. Bleached paperboard plays a major role in sustainable consumer packaging, and we will continue to service growing foodservice and packaging demand with bleached paperboard from our Texarkana facility,” said Michael Doss, President and Chief Executive Officer of Graphic Packaging.

Clearwater Paper Chief Executive Officer Arsen Kitch added, “Augusta is a great fit with our strategy and improves our position as a premier, independent paperboard supplier to North American converters. I look forward to welcoming the Augusta team to Clearwater Paper as we work together to build a more scaled paperboard business to service our customers.”
