Opal Fibre Packaging Wodonga officially open for business

Opal’s world class, $140 million corrugated cardboard packaging facility in Wodonga was officially opened today, during National Recycling Week.

Opal’s Wodonga facility, which utilises the latest advanced, high-speed packaging manufacturing technology, has a total footprint of approximately 55,000 square metres. The facility will process recycled and kraft paper from Opal’s Botany Mill in Sydney and Maryvale Mill in the Latrobe Valley.

Opal has invested in Australia’s newest corrugating facility, which will produce packaging for a wide range of fresh produce, food processing, FMCG and manufacturing industries across Australia. The facility also features a highly automated materials and waste handling system.

Maryvale Mill Maintenance Shutdown

A big thanks to everyone who contributed to the significant maintenance upgrades and capital projects completed as part of Opal Australian Paper’s Maryvale Mill shutdown. With up to 1,000 workers on-site during peak periods, the Maryvale annual shut provided a major boost to the Latrobe Valley economy.
