Mill - at the heart of corrugated packaging
Paper Making at the New Johnsonville Mill
New Johnsonville is a city in Humphreys County, Tennessee located about 150 miles northeast of Memphis and about 70 miles west of Nashville. The mill sits along the East bank of the Tennessee River.
Uniquely positioned geographically, Hood Container boasts access to two major shipping hubs; Nashville and Memphis. Hood's proximity to both cities, makes shipping corrugated medium to your location easy and economical.
The Mill's geographic location also inspires our commitment to environmental stewardship. We understand our responsibility in contributing to the community in which we do business. That's why we use sustainable fuels and recycled materials for production.
