Packager Invests $22 Million In Utah Plant, Adds 125 Jobs
SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — A foodservice packaging manufacturer has announced plans to invest in a new multimillion-dollar plant in southern Utah.
Genpak says it will expand its operations with a new $22 million plant in Cedar City that will add 125 new jobs over the next five years to the company that already employs nearly 200 people in southern Utah.
The company says the expansion will initially be used as a warehouse and distribution operation, and will add more manufacturing capabilities in the coming years.
Genpak is owned by Vancouver, Canada-based The Jim Pattison Group and operates 12 plants in the United States and five in Canada. It employs 2,200 employees.
