Phoenix Packaging To Expand In Pulaski


Phoenix Packaging Operations LLC, a container manufacturer for the global food and beverage industry, is planning to expand its manufacturing operation in Pulaski County, creating 145 new jobs.

The company, a subsidiary of Colombia-based Grupo Phoenix, opened a manufacturing facility in Pulaski in 2010. This expected $48.7 million million investment is the company’s third expansion of the facility.

“Grupo Phoenix evaluated various location options to build upon its future in the United States and chose Virginia due to a variety of factors including a central location that allows us to be within 400 miles of 80 percent of the U.S. East Coast population; the ability to negotiate electricity at a competitive rate; access to rail transport, which reduces our logistics; a motivated labor force; support from the local colleges and universities to assist us with training specialized technical jobs; and the accessibility and unwavering support of the government to work together within the industry to create jobs," Grupo Phoenix CEO Alberto Peisach said in a statement.
