Print Print this article | Send to Colleague

Graphic Packaging International Inc. (GPI), a subsidiary of Graphic Packaging Holding Co., one of the world's largest paperboard packaging companies, announced that this month it is relocating its corporate headquarters from Marietta, Ga., USA, to Sandy Springs, Ga., in the RiverEdge Summit complex. The new headquarters will enable the company to consolidate its existing four building campus into a single location.

Relocating to the new complex will be the executive team, corporate staff, North American operational headquarters, Product Development Center, and Global Innovation Center. "The consolidation of our workforce will enhance the impact of our 'one culture' message, which makes the Sandy Springs office complex an excellent location for a major corporate headquarters," said David Scheible, president and CEO.

GPI operates eight paper mills, 33 folding carton converting facilities, 19 flexible packaging facilities, and three machinery manufacturing facilities worldwide. It provides paperboard and integrated paperboard solutions to the beverage, food, and other consumer products industries. The company employs approximately 13,000 people worldwide, with more than 1,600 of those based in Georgia.

GPI's investment in Georgia extends beyond the number of individuals employed by the company. Last year, GPI announced plans to expand utilization of biomass energy in its paperboard mill located in Macon, Ga. The nearly $80 million project, once completed, will make the Macon mill self-sufficient from an electrical power and steam generation standpoint, thereby stabilizing and reducing energy costs and dependency on fossil-fuel based alternatives.
