Kingman plant adding 16 jobs

KINGMAN - Cascades Tissue Group will be bringing 16 new jobs to its Kingman plant over the next year with the expansion of its production line in December.

The company, which has been in continuous operation here since 2004, will be installing an additional state-of-the-art bath converting line to the facility in December. The line will cut large rolls of paper into small rolls.

Located in the Kingman Airport & Industrial Park, the company manufactures toilet paper, napkins and paper towels. It recently signed a new lease agreement for another 10 years, which cleared the way for the expansion. Currently, there are 82 employees at the plant.

"We are proud to be an integral part of the Kingman industrial complex and providing stable, well-paying jobs for our community," said plant manager Luc Beaudoin.

The industrial park is located about five miles north of I-40 along Route 66 and is home to about 75 businesses employing more than 2,100 people. Tenants include American Woodmark, West Coast Netting, Kingman Airline Services, Laron Inc., Luseaux Laboratories and StarRfoam Manufacturing.

Recently, Scot Industries, a tubing, piston and bar supplier, signed a lease and moved into the old Jeld-Wen facility at the park. The company has plants in Wisconsin, Texas, Illinois, Washington state, Alabama, Ohio and Ontario, Canada.

Hiring for the new positions at Cascades will take place through Mohave County One-Stop Career Center.

For more information, call (928) 753-0723.

George,

When your at store hearing that. Ask to see the owner and offer her skills face to face. I've noticed alot of people find jobs that way here. Like the old addage. It's not what you know, it's who you know. Alot of small places wont advertise in the paper perfeering word of mouth.

I know its tough. But the most common thing I hear is IF you can pass a drug test and want a job you can find one.

Now this is great news. I suspect they even pay more than those fast food, gas station, restaurant, hotel worker jobs. And I suspect the benefit of these 16 jobs have more staying power than having a big Route 66 Days weekend. Those tourism weekends only brings big bucks to the owners of the hotels, restaurants, fast fooders, and gas stations.

"Thanks a lot, Obama!"

Talking common sense here is not allowed. We have enough "Fat Food" joints to accommodate a much larger city, how they stay open is beyond me. I mean how many times can a minimum wage worker eat out every week? I think I know who's stuffing their faces and it isn't tourists!

@another drop

I wish I was allowed to draw in these text fields, because I would draw a picture of you examining the teeth of a gift horse with such force that the horse would choke.

One week before Thanksgiving be glad that 16 more people have jobs than last month.

16 jobs here, 15 jobs at a fast food place, a few more at the new tire store. At this pace kingman should have enough jobs to fill the needs of the community by 2087. Those business development folks are really getting the job done, it would be easier for them if they had either an interstate hwy. running through town or maybe a railroad in the vicinity, it would be nice to have an airport to utilize as well.

Thanks a lot, Obama!

Seriously though: Everyone comes on here and blames him directly whenever a local company closes or cuts staff, it would make just as much sense to give him kudos when a company opens or expands. Sounds dumb doesn't it? So does the opposite.
