Anthony Pratt Unveils Bold New Direction For Pratt Industries
AUSTRALIA (News release) -- In a featured article in a January 2020 edition of The Australian, Anthony Pratt - the Executive Chairman of Pratt Industries - outlined a bold new growth plan for the Pratt Industries' future, charting the box-making and recycling's ambitious course.

What's the overall goal? Pratt plans to take advantage of the modern online landscape and reach $10 billion in revenue in Australia and the United States by 2026. To get there, Pratt remains focused on the importance of being outcomes-driven over process-driven.

The growth plan of Pratt Industries comes in the wake of one of the most successful years ever for the company. In 2019, the company experienced a record 12 months of growth - with a total of $1.49bn in pre-tax profits from $7bn in revenue. That success also comes in the wake of Australia's tragic fires, which affected the operation of Visy Industries, a Pratt family business in Australia. In support, the Pratt Foundation donated $1m to help recovery efforts from the fires.

Fueling the growth for the future are two ambitious projects in the United States. Pratt Industries will construct two large paper mills in the United States, helping to foster the $1bn revenue target. This growth plan for Pratt Industries will continue a successful run of creation in the United States, where Pratt has constructed five of the last six containerboard mills in the country. The most recent is a $270m facility in Wapakoneta, Ohio, opened to wide-spanning press coverage in September 2019.
