LEIPSIC, OHIO (Nov. 19, 1:20 p.m. ET) — Blow molder Patrick Products Inc. plans to add 100,000 square feet to its facility, along with new equipment and jobs, according to Chief Financial Officer Roger Selhorst.

“We’ve seen some growth in our business and we’re getting ready for future business,” Selhorst said in a telephone interview.

The project is expected to be completed by late spring or early summer. The new space will be used for warehousing, but will allow the company to convert 25,000 square feet of existing warehouse space for manufacturing, Selhorst said. The company will add three or four new lines and about 30 new jobs.

Leipsic-based Patrick Products currently runs 18 lines in its 300,000-square-foot facility. It has 140 employees and has been in business for 12 years.

The company makes high density polyethylene bottles ranging 8 ounces to 1 gallon in size. Its containers are used for janitorial supplies, household, chemical, food and automotive products.

The Ohio Tax Authority recently approved a 45 percent, five-year tax credit to help with the planned expansion.
