East Jordan Plastics Inc. is seeking a 12-year tax break on new equipment in two facilities in South Haven, Mich.

The company, located in nearby East Jordan, is a horticultural thermoformer and plastics recycler. The tax break is on equipment and machinery at two locations totaling $1.8 million. The actual abatement on taxes would be $93,825 over the course of a 12-year period, according to city documents.

The improvements would allow for better storage and shipping at one location to serve as a logistics center and an increase in production and shipping at another location.

The company has approximately 250 employees, all located in Michigan.

The company said it will create four new jobs and retain five jobs as a direct result of the equipment and improvements.

South Haven officials are expected to debate the proposal Oct. 7 during a public hearing.
