A ribbon cutting ceremony was held Wednesday for a plastics manufacturer that has set up shop in Dover, hiring 40 additional workers and planning to employ more.
Dana Poly, a manufacturer of plastic bags and films, moved from Linden after more than 25 years at the end of October.
Owner Mendy Rosner said he was looking to expand to a bigger facility and couldn’t pass up the Dover location’s proximity to the rail line, which makes it easier to move products.
The company now employs about 50 people, including 40 local hires brought on after moving to Dover and expanding.
Among those at the ribbon cutting was Assemblyman Anthony Bucco (R-25).
“I’m happy that Dana Poly chose Dover, New Jersey, in the heart of my district, to open a new manufacturing plant. New businesses are what drives the New Jersey economy,” Bucco said. “The opening of this facility is just one example of the positive things that are happening in Dover.”
Rosner said Bucco was “instrumental” in allowing his business to grow.
“We are looking forward to growing here in Dover and bring many more jobs to this community,” Rosner said. “We are very excited about the future.”
Dover Mayor James Dodd also attended the ribbon cutting.
“We congratulate Dana Poly on their expansion and relocation to the town of Dover,” Dodd said. “We are very fortunate to have another reputable and prominent company join the many successful businesses in Dover.”
