TECH SPECS
At 284,000 square feet for Phase 1 of the project, Cascades' Oregon Converting facility in Scappoose features state-of-the-art equipment including:
* Three specialized converting lines:
- Line 1: PCMC Forte rewinder designed to produce toweling
- Line 2: PCMC Forte rewinder designed to produce bath tissue
- Line 3: Bretting Folder designed to produce multi-fold towel
* Dust filtration/Dust abatement from Osprey
* Case Packer Series 3600 from Edson
* Baler from Global
* Single Roll Wrapper and Multifold Case Packer from Infinity
* Pro Log Saw from PCMC
* Palletizer from Elletric80
Trim is baled and returned to the St. Helens mill for recycling.
expect them to work in the facility and collaborate with their partners. We're trying to
'responsibilize' the employee. If you need a
supervisor to supervise an employee to do
his job, you're adding layers to the system. In
our view, the employees are capable enough.
They are beside these machines day in and day
out, they know these machines much better
than we do, and their job is to make these
machines run as efficiently as possible. Once
you achieve this, the manager can concentrate
on making the plant more efficient, evaluating
new technology, and looking farther forward
than just the next day."
One of the first hires Cascades made was
Joseph Ertolacci, who serves as the Oregon
converting facility's mill manager. He in turn
selected the plant's core leadership group,
and gave them autonomy to select the people
in their group under some basic guiding
principles. "We hire virtue over talent," says
Ertolacci. "What that means is, let's say I had
the best rewinder operator in the area, but
they're difficult to deal with-maybe they
don't want to share their knowledge. That
would not be someone who would fit into
our family."
Training began as far back as October 2016,
when new hires were sent to Cascades facilities in Canada for training on the same types
of equipment the Scappoose plant would be
running; they also learned about the values
of the corporation. "If you have the values we
want, we're very confident we can train you
with the expertise," says Ertolacci. "Some of
our operators were in high school a year ago!
Yet we now have some of the best operators
in the nation-and I know, because I've managed a lot of mills."
Employee engagement and community
involvement are even part of Cascades'
Sustainable Development plan, says Plourde.
