 GEORGIA-PACIFIC OPENS WORLD'S MOST ADVANCED FACILITY
 FOR DESIGN AND TESTING OF PACKAGING
 ATLANTA, June 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Georgia-Pacific Corp. (NYSE: GP) has opened the industry's most advanced facility for packaging design and innovation, bringing manufacturers from across the world to Georgia in search of better boxes for their products.
 The Center for Technology & Development features the latest testing and design technology available. Georgia-Pacific engineers use high- tech equipment to crush, drop and shake boxes, creating the perfect package for products of companies like Coca-Cola, McDonald's and Lever.
 Georgia Gov. Zell Miller dedicated the 28,000-square-foot facility June 10 at a ceremony for Georgia-Pacific customers and local dignitaries.
 The center, part of the company's Containerboard and Packaging Division, will provide more than 4,000 packaging solutions annually for small and large companies.
 Located in Technology Park/Atlanta, the $5.5 million facility employs 15 engineers, designers and support staff. Testing equipment includes three climate-controlled rooms that measure package performance under extreme heat, cold and humidity, simulating environments ranging from the arctic circle to a tropical rain forest.
 In addition to package design and testing, the facility is home to an extensive resource library featuring data from historical tests, as well as scientific data relating to corrugated packaging.
 "This center is the latest example of how Atlanta has become the research hub of the forest products industry," said A.D. Correll, Georgia-Pacific president and chief operating officer. The metro area is home to three of the company's research and development laboratories, as well as the Technical Association for the Pulp & Paper Industry and the Institute of Paper Science and Technology.
