ORANGEBURG, SC. — INDEVCO Plastics, a division of INDEVCO North America Plastics, announced the official opening of its new flexible package facility located in Orangeburg. Construction on the 100,000-square-foot facility began in 2021 and boasts manufacturing, warehouse storage, offices and laboratory areas.
“Our plant in Orangeburg further cements the commitment of our board of directors and owners to grow INDEVCO Plastics in North America,” said Chady Zablit, senior vice president of manufacturing at INDEVCO Plastics. “It confirms our purpose to create opportunity for people, just as we create packaging solutions for customers as an essential part of their value chain.”
INDEVCO invested $25 million in the first phase of construction of the new facility, generating 50 new jobs. The facility manufactures more sustainable polyethylene converting films, as well as FFS (form-fill-seal) and Stretch Hood films for a variety of packaging applications, including pet food.
“Sustainable films are our growth focus,” said Scott Sirmans, divisional sales director for INDEVCO Plastics. “We are aligning our supply chain to ensure we can deliver recycled and recyclable films to help customers reduce their environmental impacts, while meeting their product performance requirements.”
As well as creating sustainable films and packaging, INDEVCO Plastics also operates a Carbon Footprint Reduction Program, which is designed to help customers measure and reduce their carbon emissions through sustainable packaging initiatives.
