Verdeco Recycling Announces New Indiana Manufacturing Location

4 June 2016

Verdeco Recycling Midwest today announced a new Indiana recycling manufacturing plant to be located in the Vigo County Industrial Park I, Terre Haute, Indiana. Building modifications are nearly complete with plant start-up anticipated to be June 2016, with full employment by late summer.

Verdeco Recycling is the industry leader in the manufacturing of FDA-approved PET resins using a proprietary “state-of-the-art” processing technology. With this modern manufacturing plant, the company’s national U.S. footprint will widen. Utilizing all new manufacturing extrusion equipment and conveying systems, this is the company’s second U.S. plant, with the first facility in South Gate, California, near Los Angeles, operating since 2012. Additional plants and expansions are planned.

“It has been an exciting process to come to this point,” says Alex Ofer, the President of Verdeco Recycling Midwest. “Our expansion into The Hoosier State represents yet another milestone in the growth of Verdeco Recycling. The Terre Haute plant will allow us to better serve the needs of our existing clients while also bringing new companies to the Verdeco Recycling family of customers.”

The company’s expansion into the central Indiana region is expected to bring over 29 new jobs to the area (can grow with the plant capacity expansion). By locating in Terre Haute, Indiana, the new facility will be in close proximity to the greater Indianapolis region, which is positioned near four U.S. interstates, allowing convenient service to Midwestern markets. The new manufacturing plant and skilled local workforce will enable Verdeco Recycling to further solidify its longstanding reputation of providing product of the highest quality to its customers.

Terre Haute/Vigo County leaders, guided by Steve Witt of the Terre Haute Economic Development Corporation, enabled a seamless integration of Verdeco Recycling Midwest into the Terre Haute area. Likewise, Indiana Economic Development Corporation representatives did a superb job in leading the company through the site selection process. Terre Haute-based Garmong Construction, along with other local contractors are being used for all electrical, mechanical installation and construction services, and have been reliable partners performing to the highest standards.

“Verdeco Recycling is investing substantial capital to bring the plant up to the highest reliability, quality, and cleanliness standards, thus further enhancing our ‘state-of-the-art’ technology,” notes Rick Blakeslee, Verdeco’s project manager. “This endeavor will give the company a U.S. capacity totaling over 100 million pounds annually. By reducing shipping costs and increasing the company’s capacity and reach across the region and U.S., Verdeco Recycling will effectively amplify distribution in a cost-effective, eco-friendly manner.”
