Georgia-Pacific marks 50th year in Plattsburgh

Celebrates decades in Plattsburgh


The Plattsburgh mill often serves as a feeder mill where employees can move up the ladder at  to the Georgia-Pacific locations, Stallsmith said.


The Plattsburgh mill presently has about 150 employees, Stallsmith said.

It produces the company’s top-of-the-line bathroom tissue, Quilted Northern Ultra Plush, as well as the Kirkland Signature line for Costco.

Stallsmith said the 50th anniversary is a testament to the tremendous group of employees in Plattsburgh. Those employees are not afraid to speak up if they see a way to do things better, which helps the sustainability of the facility, he said.

“I sincerely appreciate the loyalty and dedication that our former and current employees have to produce some of what I believe are the best products on the market with quality and safety. They have a strong sense of doing the right things.

“That has made my time in Plattsburgh very enjoyable and very rewarding also.”

City of Plattsburgh Mayor Donald Kasprzak said the commitment Georgia-Pacific made to the city 50 years ago has made it a better place in which to live and work.

“The company is of the North Country and we hope they continue to have a presence here for a long time,” he said. “As mayor, I truly appreciate the many relationships I’ve made with their management and employees. I’ve always been proud of their commitment to the community.”
