Silgan Plastics has reportedly selected the location of its second new plastics container plant.
The Chesterfield, Mo.-based company has been given preliminary approval for a $1.4 million, no-interest loan for equipment for the site in Hazelwood, Mo., according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
Silgan Holdings Inc., the plastic company's parent company, earlier this year said it was planning two new plastic container plants. Pennsylvania economic development officials previously said one of those sites is going to be in the Borough of North East in Erie County.
Now word comes that the other site will be in Hazelwood, where that city council gave approval for the loan this week, the newspaper reported. The newspaper also said the company is considering moving its Silgan Plastics headquarters to the site in the future.
