Pratt Industries, the newest occupant in Wapakoneta’s Job Ready Site, is living up to its mission — to be the best vertically-integrated paper, packaging and resource recovery company in the Western Hemisphere — with plans to lease the former Gateway Packaging facility on Industrial Drive and convert it to a drop and bale facility to feed the new paper mill now under construction on County Road 25A.
Officials in Wapakoneta are saying that the recent deal made for the greenhouse may be a good opportunity for the city.
Changes are coming to the greenhouse in Wapakoneta.
