Israel-based Polymer Logistics will celebrate the grand opening Thursday afternoon of its new $4 million logistics and distribution center in Portage. Fred Heptinstall, chief executive officer of North America for Polymer Logistics, will join Portage Mayor James Snyder and other officials to cut the ribbon on the facility, which the company says will bring 50 jobs to the area.
Polymer Logistics did not immediately release the investment total for the state-of-the-art, 75,000 square-foot facility. The ribbon cutting ceremony is scheduled for 4:00 p.m.
The retail-ready packaging company has facilities throughout the world and earlier this year broke ground on a similar service center in Georgia. The company counts many high-profile companies as customers, including Walmart, Coca-Cola, and Kraft.
