Resins Firm Plastic Express to Open Two Plants in Georgia

California-based resins manufacturer Plastic Express plans to open two new production plants in Georgia and invest $172 million in the Port Logistics Center at the Port of Savannah, the state’s department of economic development announced in a recent press release. 

“We are very happy to plant our flag in Savannah,” the firm’s president and chief executive officer, Ray Hufnagel, said in a statement. “Plastic Express has been searching for a strategic opportunity in every viable port location in the southeast for a few years. The impressiveness of the Port of Savanah operations along with Georgia’s welcoming business climate has made Savannah the clear and obvious choice for us.”

The firm currently operates trucking terminals, warehouses, transloading docks, and packaging facilities across the U.S. 

“We are excited that Plastic Express chose to expand their operations here in Georgia,” Gov. Brian P. Kemp said in the release. “The company’s impact will not only be felt in terms of job creation and investment, but they will be one of the top five export customers from the Georgia Ports Authority.”

Plastic Express said it expects to occupy the new facilities by early October.
