InFlex, a subsidiary of Thomson, Ga.-based film and resin maker Amcor Inc., will invest almost $8 million to expand its operations to Alma, Ga., where it plans to create 100 jobs.
The company said it will repurpose an 85,500-square-foot building in Alma. Renovations should be complete by the end of the year.
The Inflex expansion "will help Amcor continue to deliver technology and products such as high-strength, lightweight polymer products used in the automotive, packaging, and construction industries," the company said in a July 1 news release.
Amcor started in 1992 as a plastic film and bags manufacturer and makes shrink, embossed and laminated films; sheeting; bags; and tubing. It also produces additives and masterbatches, and prime, wide-spec and engineered blends of a variety of resins and polymers.
Amcor and its five divisions employ about 150 people in the Thomson area, which is about 30 miles west of Augusta, Ga. The company did not say why it chose to expand in Alma, which is about 145 miles south of Thomson.
Amcor Inc. is not related to packaging major Amcor plc.
