“Plastipak is extremely appreciative of the support it has received from the local community and business organizations,” said William C. Young, president and CEO of Plastipak Holdings. “The Plastipak Team is excited to be able to expand our plant again and to continue to serve our regional customers with high-quality products that are manufactured in the state of Alabama.”
Plastipak’s expansion, which will add at least five jobs, is a boost for the Jefferson County Metropolitan Park in McCalla, where it currently employs 117 people. This is the latest in a series of expansions at Plastipak’s JeffMet facility.
Plastipak worked with the BBA and officials in Jefferson County on the expansion. The Jefferson County Commission this week approved statutory abatements valued at nearly $427,000 over 10 years for the project.
“Plastipak is a longtime and highly valued investor in the county’s JeffMet Business Park,” Jefferson County Commissioner David Carrington said. “This business expansion project brings additional investment and jobs to western Jefferson County.”
