Due to the growing demand of paper tubes and cores, Yazoo is proud to announce that the company has made a further investment with the addition of manufacturing lines at our Hanover Distribution Center located in Hanover, Pennsylvania. The project started back in the summer of 2017 with planning for the expansion and figuring out the layout of the new production lines.  The first phase started with infrastructure and kicked off in the fall of 2017, with the completion of the infrastructure coming to a close by December 2017.

Projects during phase one consisted of hooking up electricity for the incoming manufacturing lines, adding a large compressed air system, dust collectors, top-of-the-line glue systems for each winding line, brighter lighting, additional bathrooms, a new production office, as well as a new racking system within the production area.

Continue to follow along as we will be posting the next three phases this month!



In late April, we officially broke ground on the expansion of our Distribution Center.  After only three years in operation, we are doubling the size of this facility to a total of 90,000 square feet.  Conewago Enterprises, Inc. has been working hard and diligently to keep the process of the expansion moving.  With the weather cooperating, Conewago was able to set the walls in a matter of days and the roof will soon be completed as well.

The expansion will allow Yazoo Mills to better serve our customers through an increase in product offerings, speed to market, and help the company meet an ever-growing demand for our products.  This project is targeted to be completed by August.  When completed, Yazoo will operate two facilities, totaling 240,000 square feet.



Our company has been consistently growing over the past few years which has caused us to make many changes to our facilities.  A few months back, the company decided to move the maintenance shop to the pallet warehouse to gain much more space to work and a lot more room for tools and storage.  Yazoo decided to turn the old maintenance shop into a brand new employee break area and renovate the old storage room into new, additional employee bathrooms.

The new enclosed employee break area has a brand new kitchen, two large windows to let natural sunlight in, brand new tables and chairs, and has heating and air conditioning.  This clean, bright, and quiet atmosphere allows employees to step away from their working environment and enjoy their breaks in this new bigger and modern break area.  In addition to the new break area, Yazoo also renovated the old storage room into additional men’s and women’s bathrooms for employees to use.
