GENEVA — Green Bay Packaging is planning an expansion project, following the purchase of Third Dimension last October.
The 112,000-square-foot expansion will occur at 633 Pleasant Ave., Geneva.
The plan is to break ground this spring with a completion date in the fourth quarter of 2021. The expansion will house new box-converting equipment, which will provide additional production capabilities.
Final approval is pending upon notification of a tax abatement from the city of Geneva.
Third Dimension employed about 100 people, but that will change in the near future with a $70,000 to $80,000 expansion project, said Louis DeJesus, previous owner and founder of Third Dimension, at a press conference announcing the sale last October.
DeJesus said the necessity of selling the company became apparent so they could continue to grow. About three years ago, he realized the company needed to work with another and had been talking with Green Bay Packaging leaders for about two years.
Started in 1933, Green Bay Packaging is a $2 billion family-owned company with 3,600 employees. The business consists of corrugated container plants, folding cartons, recycled and virgin liner board mills, pressure-sensitive label roll stock, specialty converting operations, timberlands and a sawmill facility.
With headquarters in Green Bay, Wis., Green Bay Packaging is dedicated to innovative development of its products and forestry resources, with a focus on quality, sustainability and continuous improvement throughout all its manufacturing facilities in 14 states, according to its website.
