Last Tuesday, the Lt. Governor of Indiana, Suzanne Crouch, toured the Pratt Industries Valparaiso, Indiana paper mill and the connecting corrugated box plant, which is the largest box plant that exists in the world.
Paul England and some of his colleagues at Pratt Industries escorted the Lt. Governor around the facility, where she witnessed how the company consumes 2.5 million pounds of recovered fiber per day. Crouch was particularly interested in the labor force and the company's job education program for employees. Indiana ISRI Chapter President Neil Samahon attended the tour was able to speak to the industry's economic impact on the state as well as the importance of policy that recognizes recyclables are not waste.
ISRI wishes to thank Pratt Industries for opening its doors to the Lt. Governor and ISRI for this event.
