Materials firm Standridge Color Corp. plans to build a new production plant in Burley, Idaho.
The location will be the first west of the Rocky Mountains for Social Circle, Ga.-based Standridge, according to a Sept. 11 news release from the Southern Idaho Economic Development Association.
"We are excited about our new facility in Burley and look forward to being part of this wonderful community," Standridge executive Henry Stowe said in the release.
"Our location and strong, qualified workforce makes the region the ideal choice for Standridge Color's continued growth for the future," SIEDO executive director Connie Stopher added.
The facility is under construction and is expected to open in November. Standridge has five other U.S. plants as well as international sites in Spain, China and the Czech Republic.
Standridge makes color and additive concentrates and compounds based on a wide variety of resins for multiple markets. The 44-year-old firm can supply orders in sizes ranging from 100 pounds to rail cars.
