Rhinelander, WI, July 22 — Printpack, a member of the local business community for over 25 years, is holding a grand opening for its new Rhinelander manufacturing facility on Monday, August 11, 2014. The event will feature a ribbon cutting ceremony and public tours of the new plant.

State and local dignitaries including Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker, Rhinelander City Mayor Richard Johns, Rhinelander City Administrator Blain Oborn, Oneida County Economic Development Executive Director Roger Luce, Wisconsin State Representative Rob Swearingen, and Wisconsin State Senator Tom Tiffany are expected to attend.
Chairman and CEO Dennis Love said, “Printpack has been pleased to be a part of the Rhinelander community for over 25 years, and we are excited about the new investment we are making there. This major commitment will provide our Rhinelander associates with the best technology available in our industry and put us on a path to continued success for years to come.”
The event will begin at 10:30 with a ribbon cutting ceremony followed by comments from Printpack Chairman and CEO Dennis Love and Governor Scott Walker. The plant will be open to the public for tours from 11:00-1:00. Refreshments will be served.
