Plastipak will expand its Garland, Texas manufacturing site later this year with a $10 million investment primarily in enhanced machinery and equipment. The investment will add six new jobs to the company’s current workforce of 273 positions over the next three years.
The existing 400,000-square-foot Garland site, which began operations in 1996, provides rigid plastic containers for companies including Dr Pepper, PepsiCo, Kraft Heinz and Procter & Gamble. The company also maintains nearly 500,000 square feet of warehousing and distribution space in two other locations in Garland.
“We opened our Garland facility over 20 years ago to be close to our customers,” said Scott Ratzman, Regional Operations Manager at Plastipak Packaging. “The operational support that we’ve received from the City, Garland Power & Light and the local community college for our various training needs have been terrific.”
