Polyram Group

EVANSVILLE - Polyram Group, a global producer of raw materials for the plastics industry, will locate its first U.S. production facility in Evansville, with plans to create more than 50 new jobs by 2022.
 


"In today's global economy, there's a clear reason why more than 800 foreign-owned business facilities are located throughout the state," said Jim Schellinger, Indiana Secretary of Commerce. "International manufacturers like Polyram are coming to Indiana because we've built a business climate that's affordable and a workforce that's highly skilled in producing goods that are shipped globally. We're excited to welcome another Israeli company to Indiana as our relationships with entrepreneurs and business leaders around the world continue to grow."


The Israel-based manufacturer will lease, renovate and equip a 100,000-square-foot facility in the Vanderburgh Industrial Park. With renovations on the building scheduled to begin this month, the company will update the facility to meet its industrial service requirements and install equipment to produce plastic additives and adhesives for the compounding and food packaging industries. Operations at the facility are expected to begin in early 2018.
 
Polyram, which currently employs 200 associates globally, plans to hire its Indiana plant manager and human resource manager this summer. Hiring for all other positions, including warehousing, maintenance, shift leader, machine operating, accounting and lab jobs, will follow later this year and early next year.
 
“We are excited and are looking forward to joining the Indiana community known all over the world for its manufacturing tradition and culture,” said Sharon Segev, chief operating officer at Polyram. “The Evansville area is internationally known for its deep plastic industry roots. Its ideal logistical location and availability of a highly-skilled workforce with all the skill sets required for plastic manufacturing were key factors contributing to our decision.”
 
Founded in 1986 in Ram-On, Israel, Polyram is a global plastics supplier with two production facilities in Israel and one production site in China, in addition to warehouse and sales operations in Ohio, Spain, France, the United Kingdom, China, Germany, Italy and Russia. Polyram’s new Indiana facility will serve the company’s customers locally and around the world.
