In April, the Cedar Hill City Council approved an agreement with Pratt Industries, Inc. (through its wholly-owned subsidiary, Pratt Corrugated Holdings, Inc.) to locate a Regional Manufacturing & Innovation Center at High Point 67 in Cedar Hill, Texas. The Pratt facility will manufacture corrugated boxes and custom packaging solutions and employ 150 full-time workers.
“We’re very honored to be in Cedar Hill and we’re committed to the great state of Texas — in fact this is our 5th box factory here,” said Anthony Pratt, executive chairman of Pratt Industries. “We have long prided ourselves on the fact that we employ 11,000 Americans in well-paying, green-collar manufacturing jobs and we have now invested in America to the value of $10 billion. Cedar Hill will be our 71st factory in the USA.”
Mike Tansey, President of Pratt’s Southwest Converting Division, said, “We are excited to partner with the city of Cedar Hill and its officials to open this state-of-the-art facility and bring new, green-collar jobs to the area.”
Additionally, Pratt plans to sponsor a training and development program in collaboration with the city and school district.
“Pratt believes in investing in our employees and the communities where we live, work and serve,” Tansey said. “We have a strong history of providing continuous education, apprenticeships and on-the-job training opportunities for our employees. This joint collaboration with Cedar Hill and the school district is a great opportunity for us to encourage and invest in the community’s young talent and to help them find meaningful employment and long-term financial stability.”
Pratt Industries is America’s 5th largest corrugated packaging company and the world’s largest, privately-held producer of 100% recycled containerboard. The Georgia-based company operates an extensive Recycling Company to supply its five 100% recycled paper mills in the U.S.
