California-based Verdeco Recycling Inc. has announced it is opening a new recycling manufacturing plant in Terre Haute. The nearly $8 million project is nearly complete and the company expects the plant to bring around 30 new jobs to the area.

Verdeco has been making modifications to the building in Terre Haute, including a build-out of offices, utility upgrades, machinery prep and installation of production equipment. The company says the plant will widen its national footprint.

"It has been an exciting process to come to this point," said Alex Ofer, president of Verdeco Recycling Midwest. "Our expansion into the Hoosier State represents yet another milestone in the growth of Verdeco Recycling. The Terre Haute plant will allow us to better serve the needs of our existing clients while also bringing new companies to the Verdeco Recycling family of customers."

Verdeco says more employees can be added as plant capacity expands. The company, which has another plant in South Gate, California, says additional plants and expansions are planned.
