Indiana plant will be the company’s 3rd new site since 2000.
Injection molderPhoenix Closureshas announced plans for a new
manufacturing plant in Greencastle, IN. Located approximately 45 minutes west
of Indianapolis and minutes from I-70, the 250,000 sq ft facility will sit on
57 acres of land and is scheduled to begin production in late 2012. Fueled by
organic growth, this will be the company’s third new site since 2000.
Phoenix worked with The State of Indiana and the
Greencastle/Putnam County Development Center to find a location that met its
particular needs. “In addition to meeting our specific manufacturing
requirements, the Greencastle site is located near our strategic markets and
has potential for growth,” explains Ed Buck, VP of Manufacturing. “The
availability of an existing crane bay and rail service made the building a
viable option for redevelopment.”
The State of Indiana
has offered Phoenix
assistance with renovation that will convert this under-utilized property into
a food-grade packaging manufacturing facility. The City of Greencastle will
provide incentives in the form of tax abatements, infrastructure improvements,
and training grants.
