Georgia-based Pratt Industries says it is continuing to look for workers for its new recycling plant in Valparaiso. Our partners at The Times of Northwest Indiana report base salaries for the 40 positions are as much as $54,000 per year. Pratt Industries announced plans in 2013 to invest more than $200 million in the project. At the time, the company said the plant would create nearly 140 jobs.
At full capacity, Pratt says the plant will produce an increased 360,000 tons of recycled paper every year. The company hopes to begin operations at the facility in September.
Pratt also has a box-making facility and employs 280 in the city.
