DECATUR, Alabama – Polyplex USA announced plans today to invest over $90.6 million to expand production of specialized polyester film at its Decatur facility in a project that will create 100 jobs when complete.
Polyplex plans to add a second Biaxially Oriented Polyethylene Terephthalate (BOPET) film line at the Alabama facility, with an additional investment to create matching capacity for captive resin. BOPET is used in packaging, electrical and other industrial applications.
Amit Kalra, president of Polyplex USA, said the growth project will solidify the company’s leadership position in the U.S. market.
“We are eager to leverage our existing operations, our strong ties to our customers, to our communities and of course to the expertise of our operations team as evidenced by our successful expansions in other locations,” Kalra said.
