Opal has opened its $140 million corrugated cardboard packaging facility in Wodonga.
Stage one of the construction supported 195 construction jobs and once fully operational will support 432 direct and follow-on jobs.
Opal’s Wodonga facility, which utilises the latest advanced, high-speed packaging manufacturing technology, has a total footprint of approximately 55,000 square metres. The facility will process recycled and kraft paper from Opal’s Botany Mill in Sydney and Maryvale Mill in the Latrobe Valley.
Opal has invested in Australia’s newest corrugating facility, which will produce packaging for a wide range of fresh produce, food processing, FMCG and manufacturing industries across Australia. The facility also features a highly automated materials and waste handling system.
Located at the Logic Wodonga industrial estate in Victoria, the facility is being constructed in two stages. Stage One will deliver a highly automated, sophisticated 47,000m2 manufacturing site. A future Stage Two would expand the site to increase its production capacity.
