TURLOCK, CA, Aug. 21, 2019 (Local News) -While Evergreen Packaging has been a fixture on West Main Street for over 50 years, many are unaware of how massive the Turlock operation is — producing thousands of milk and juice cartons on a weekly basis.

Evergreen Packaging opened its Turlock location in 1957, which operates as one of nine Evergreen plants and mills throughout the country. Located on the corner of West Main Street and South Tully Road, the Turlock beverage packaging plant cuts about 30,000 tons of cardboard per year to make fiber-based liquid packaging used throughout 14 western states, western Canada, Hawaii and parts of Latin America.

Ed Burton has been with Evergreen for 30 years, he said, and has served as the Turlock plant’s manager for the last 15. While the plant has seen plenty of change since opening in the late ‘50s, much has remained the same, Burton said.
