ODON, EVANSVILLE – Describing it as a competitive win for the town of Odon, Evansville-based Berry Global Group Inc. (NYSE: BERY) broke ground Wednesday on a significant expansion of its plant in the town of 1,300.
The plastics wrap firm is adding 40,000 square feet to its blown film operations in what Berry calls a “multi-million” dollar investment. The company says it will add 11 new jobs on top of the approximately 40 people already working at the plant.
The Daviess County Economic Development Corp. says Berry Global could have chosen to expand one of its other facilities but decided Odon was the best option.
“Daviess County has a strong workforce, and Berry’s decision to expand here and create new jobs reflects the strength of that available workforce,” said Bryant Niehoff, executive director for Daviess County EDC. “Berry has already proven to be a great partner for the town and for the county, and we look forward to helping Berry achieve maximum benefit for its investment here.”
