Polymer Logistics USA expects to create more than 200 jobs though the creation of new logistics and distribution centers in Georgia and Illinois.
The company already has two such centers in California and one in Texas to provide reusable plastic containers (RPCs) to companies like Wal-Mart and Kroger.
Both new sites are expected to be open during the third quarter of this year, the company said.
“With the continued Wal-Mart roll-out of our new wood grain RPCs in 2016, Polymer Logistics is expanding the number and geographic reach of our wash and distribution facilities to meet increased demand for our products,” said Tony Mosco, North American vice president of sales for the company, in a statement.
Each new site will create more than 100 new jobs, the company said.
New centers in Dublin, Ga., and northern Illinois will join existing company sites in Salinas and Riverside, Calif., and San Antonio, Texas.
RPCs are typically used to ship and then display merchandise at retailers. They can be used repeatedly, which Polymer Logistics says is an advantage over other types of packaging.
Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal made an announcement about the Georgia facility May 19, indicating it is a $4 million project.
“Our team has been working in partnership with state and local officials to bring a significant investment and new jobs to Georgia,” said Danny Bartal, chief operating officer of Polymer Logistics USA, in a statement. “The ease of doing business in the state has been impressive and will accelerate the completion of this facility.”
Polymer Logistics USA is a subsidiary of Polymer Logistics NV of Dongen, the Netherlands.
