Amcor Rigid Plastics, one of the world’s largest manufacturers of rigid plastic packaging for consumer products has announced a major expansion of its Bellevue, Ohio facility with an investment $40 million.
Amcor’s expansion of the 30-year-old facility will include an addition of 126,000 sq ft of manufacturing space and an additional 85,000 sq ft of warehouse space. The expanded footprint is expected to boost employment beyond the current 148-person workforce. Bellevue currently produces preforms along with injection blow molded and extrusion blow molded rigid plastic containers.
This $40 million investment, which will nearly double the facility’s manufacturing and warehouse footprint, is supported by an economic development grant from JobsOhio through the assistance of the Regional Growth Partnership (RGP).
The expansion project is already underway and completion is expected next summer.
