“Its expansions over the years indicate a strong local workforce and an ideal central location to serve its customers throughout the Southeast,” said Ted vonCannon, executive director of the Jefferson County Economic and Industrial Development Authority, which manages the 739-acre JeffMet industrial park.
Plastipak worked with the BBA and officials in Jefferson County on the expansion. The Jefferson County Commission today approved statutory abatements valued at nearly $427,000 over 10 years for the project.
“Plastipak is a long-time 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.”
