With the passing of Scott the hopes are we can get someone to keep this list up-to-date.

Any takers? @aussieguinnessman Keith?

All has been updated based on the information provided by @Mizmo64 Tommy...Thanks so much. A bunch added and updated.

Still need to break out some of the specific numbers that actually equate to other divisions. Might be why certain numbers are the way they are (i.e. 400s seem to be from the glass division while paper and cardboard divisions).

Not quite all the holes, No Canadian plants are listed... Here's a few additions that may help with that,

Here's a link to a 1971 report that indicates that they had 25 plants in Canada, you'll have to scroll through to the French section to see the eastern plants, sadly no plant numbers.

https://digital.library.mcgill.ca/hrcor ... 636497.pdf

Plant 27- Burnaby B.C.?

Plant 471-Trenton Ontario, in 1971 it joined plant 54 in Etobicoke Ontario.

Plant 483- Concord Ontario
