Delta Plastics’ parent company Revolution is expanding its Little Rock manufacturing facility.
Revolution is adding another 36,000-square-feet to the facility, which currently has 100,000-square-feet. According to the company, the investment at the facility will total more than $20 million and create more than 60 jobs over the course of two years.
The company plans to increase employment at the Little Rock facility to more than 350.
“The partnerships we formed and the support we have received at the local and state levels for this expansion project is a testament to the strength of the Little Rock community and the great state of Arkansas,” Revolution CEO Sean Whiteley said in a statement. “We are grateful to work with such exceptional people who are committed to economic growth and environmentally sustainable business solutions. Based on increased business demand, strong customer relationships, and our strategic growth plan, the time is right to move forward with this major expansion.”
By expanding, Revolution will be able to add two blown film lines that will producing 40 million pounds of film products every year. These film products will utilize post-consumer recycled plastics.
“From the beginning, we have been unified by a single powerful mission of preserving our environment for future generations,” Whiteley said. “We do this by diverting millions of pounds of plastic from landfills each year and turning it back into new products through our innovative collection and recycling processes. We are proud to have the support of Little Rock and the state of Arkansas in these efforts, and we look forward to continued growth in the future.”
Revolution has been expanding in recent years, developing new markets in the upper U.S. Midwest and California.
