Georgia-Pacific Dixie Manufacturing Plant

JE Dunn is leading a design-build team is delivering a new, 893,600 square foot greenfield plant for Georgia-Pacific’s Dixie brand. It is the first new, ground-up Dixie facility constructed since 1991. The new facility will increase production capacity, meeting increased consumer demand. This is a prototype facility for Georgia-Pacific and the front-end planning process on this project will be key to defining scope for future new facilities.

The new facility will include manufacturing, warehousing and rail dock areas, as well as maintenance shops for equipment. A separate, but connected, 16,000 square foot office area is also included. As a greenfield project, the team will also design and engineer a wastewater pre-treatment system, process systems, IT infrastructure, and electrical infrastructure.

JE Dunn is leading purchasing of all infrastructure equipment and a major portion of the process equipment. Our team will own commissioning of all equipment purchased as the design-builder. JE Dunn will also lead installation of manufacturing equipment in the new plant.

Major process systems include printers, compressed air with dryers, paper coating systems, above and in-floor conveying, and a trim paper collection system.
