Tuscarora seeking larger Michigan site CHESANING, MICH. — Tuscarora Inc. is seeking another site to house its expandable polystyrene and expandable polypropylene steam compression molding operation in mid-Michigan.
The company has about 65 employees at its Chesaning factory now, and has outgrown the existing facility, said Ron Margeson, vice president for Tuscarora's Midwest division.
The site is next to residential neighborhoods, limiting opportunities to expand, he said.
"The building itself is just not large enough for our needs," he said May 19 by telephone.
The company, based in New Brighton, Pa., wants to stay in the area to retain its existing work force and stay close to its customer base in packaging and automotive components, he said.
