Injection Moulding Austrian packaging manufacturer Alpla to build new facility in the US
USA/Austria — The Alpla Group, a global packaging solutions manufacturer and recycling specialist headquartered in Hard, Austria, announced that it has selected the Kansas City region for its new 23,000-square-metre manufacturing plant.
In a facility located at the Blue River Commerce Center in Kansas City, Missouri, the regional organisation Alpla will create 75 jobs while continuing to invest in the city over the next several years.
The new addition in Kansas City will be the company’s fourth site in Missouri and the first dedicated to injection moulding. As such, the manufacturer will produce innovative packaging systems, bottles, caps and injection-moulded parts for a wide range of industries. Led by Cushman & Wakefield, the project is slated to begin in late 2021, with a completion date in the fourth quarter of 2022.
The company cited the Kansas City region’s central location and strong community relationships as key drivers for the decision.
