Project Spoke is Moving Along!

Code named ‘Project Spoke’, the future site of Green Bay Converting, Wisconsin-based converter of specialty paper and tissue products, is moving along.  Site construction, funded through Forrest County and a grant from the Mississippi Development Authority, started this week. The site is located at 176 W.L. Runnels Industrial Drive in the Hattiesburg-Forrest County Industrial Park across the street from Stion.

HRL Contracting of Picayune, Mississippi is clearing 35 Acres of the 40 Acre site to make way for the approximately 250,000 cubic yards of earth which need to be moved for this project. At $760,000, this phase of the project is supposed to be completed in 45 days to make way for the building contractor to get started on the new 400,000 square foot facility.



As of 9 September the building pad is complete and the foundation construction has started.  Site grading continues with completion estimated to be a few weeks away.
