Kingsey Falls, CANADA, Jun 28, 2012 – Cascades Inc. (TSX: CAS), a leader in recovery and in green packaging and tissue paper products, is pleased to announce that its Cascades Sonoco plant, in Birmingham, Alabama, won the 2012 Small Manufacturer of the Year Award, presented by The Business Council of Alabama and the Alabama Technology Network.
A joint venture between Cascades and Sonoco Products, Cascades Sonoco is North America's leading supplier of paper mill roll packaging products.

Winning manufacturers are selected by an independent panel of judges who look for demonstrations of superior performance in the areas of customer focus, employee commitment, operational excellence, continuous improvement, profitable growth and investment in training and retraining.
