KANSAS CITY, MO. (Nov. 27, 12:30 p.m. ET) — Logoplaste SA is opening a new manufacturing plant in Kansas City.

The rigid packaging manufacturer is investing $31.5 million to start operations at a 200,000 square foot facility in the East Bottoms region of the city, according to the Kansas City Area Development Council.

The plant will manufacture plastic bottles to fulfill a contract with Procter & Gamble Co., said John Fougere, director of communications with the Missouri Department of Economic Development.

Logoplaste will create 80 new full-time, permanent jobs over the next 5 years, Fougere said.

The company will receive more than $1.65 million in tax credits and $92,5000 in recruitment assistance from the state, he said.
