In August 2002, Kruger acquired a very large, idle tissue mill in Memphis, Tennessee, and established a new company – K.T.G. (USA) L.P. K.T.G.’s facilities, which stretch over 40 acres of an 80-acre property located north of downtown Memphis, are that city’s largest industrial complex. K.T.G. is part of Kruger’s strategy to strengthen its competitive position by making a foray into the premium private label retail market in the US.
K.T.G.’s operations have been integrated with those of Kruger Products L.P. in order to drive sales synergy, technological innovation and new product development. The Mill's production capacity was initially increased gradually to produce private label products. Kruger Products Memphis employs nearly 500 people.
