Mid South Extrusion to Add New Production Line

Converting and process films supplier Mid South Extrusion (MSE) is committing $4.5 million to add a new blown-film production line at its Monroe, LA polyethylene (PE) films plant, the company announced in a release Tuesday with Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards. 

“In addition to substantially increasing our plant capacity, this investment will allow MSE to target new markets and customers in the food packaging sector,” the firm’s president, Ron Mason, said in a statement.

Once the project is completed, the facility will have a total of 10 production lines. Opened in 1986, the Monroe plant initially occupyed 17,000 sq ft and contained one production line, according to the company. Today the building is 200,000 sq ft.

Eight new jobs will be created by the expansion with an average annual salary of $28,000. MSE said it also plans to retain 128 existing positions in Monroe. 

MSE is a manufacturer of polyethylene films used in a number of applications, including retail packaging, lamination substrates, and construction.
