Pretium Packaging is expanding two of its plants: Carrollton, Texas, and Aurora, Ill. The Carrollton plant will be expanded by 52,000 square feet to allow an addition of PET bottle production lines; and the Aurora location, with a 54,000 sq. ft. expansion, will provide additional manufacturing and warehousing space.

“We are excited about bringing PET to Texas. At Pretium, it is all about being close to our customers. The expansion will enable us to produce PET bottles in a facility that is closer to brand owner filling operations. By shifting our production, we will be able to shorten delivery times, as well as reduce our transportation carbon footprint. With brand owners wanting to shorten the supply chain timeline, this is one way we can help them meet their objectives,” said Mark Howell, senior vice president sales and marketing, Pretium.

As part of the Texas expansion project, Pretium will be phasing out its Walterboro, S.C. facility and redeploying PET production lines to the Texas plant.
