Silgan Plastics (Chesterfield, MO), a leading North American manufacturer of plastic containers, has announced the construction of a new production facility in Hazelwood, MO, a suburb of St. Louis. This expansion is in addition to the recently announced greenfield facility in the borough of North East, PA. The facility further optimizes customer support and is logistically located to take on additional growth, says Silgan.
Construction has begun on the approximately 335,000-sq-ft plant and will bring at least 120 new manufacturing jobs to the area. The facility is expected to be operational in late 2015.
