Mohawk Celebrates the Grand Opening of Northeast Envelope Converting Center
Mohawk, North America's largest privately owned manufacturer of fine papers, envelopes and specialty substrates for commercial and digital printing, recently celebrated the grand opening of a new envelope converting facility in the town of South Hadley, Mass.
Members of the press, local and state politicians, and members of the business community toured the facility last week with Mohawk Chairman and CEO Thomas D. O'Connor Jr.
The 112,342 sq. ft. site, located at 28 Gaylord Street, features envelope converting capacity to service the company's East Coast, Mid-Atlantic and European customers.
Mohawk invested approximately $2 million to retrofit the South Hadley facility, which included upgrading electrical systems, installing air and vacuum lines, and purchasing and installing envelope converting and manufacturing equipment.
The facility has been operational since May, and is expected to produce 500 million envelopes annually. To date, Mohawk has hired 16 new employees, and plans to hire up to 40 employees over the next year.
DTZ of Boston managed the site location process and lease negotiation for Mohawk.
Mohawk continually sets industry-leading standards for safe operations and the company is known throughout the paper industry for its state-of-the-art manufacturing and converting capabilities, which include fine paper mills in Cohoes and Waterford, N.Y., as well as a world-class paper and envelope converting facility in Ashtabula, Ohio, which produces 1.5 billion envelopes a year.
