OAKLAND, Dec. 5, 2014 (PPI Pulp & Paper Week) -Cascades upgraded two Norampac corrugated box plants in Vaudreuil and Drummondville, QC, with new high-speed printing presses that cost C$13 million, the company announced.

The Mitsubishi EVOL presses are to allow the Norampac plants to increase their productivity, versatility, and quality of products, the company said. The new press at Vaudreuil started up in September and the press at Drummondville started early last month.

Norampac VP and COO for packaging Charles Malo said the presses are "part of our efforts to modernize (our) assets. Similar investments were made at several Norampac corrugated converting plants in Ontario and productivity at the plants increased significantly."

Norampac operates about five corrugated plants in Quebec and eight in Ontario.
