Plastic Express Opening New Facility In Georgia, Creating 200 Jobs And Investing $80 Million

Plastic Express, a leader in the plastic resins shipping industry, will be building a new shipping facility in Savannah, Georgia, which is expected to create 200 new jobs and invest $80 million in Chatham County. 

“Savannah, Georgia, has presented a solid opportunity for investment in export logistic centers to complement the aggressive capability expansions at the port,” said Ray Hufnagel, President and CEO of Plastic Express. “Plastic Express has experienced success with our newest facility operating in Pooler, Georgia, and anticipates the same success with this second investment.”

Plastic Express was founded in 1970 and is headquartered in Pasadena, Texas. The company offers bulk trucking, bulk terminal, packaging, and warehouse services for the plastics industry. 

According to a press release from Georgia Governor Brian Kemp’s office, in addition to plastic resins, “the firm’s PX Services unit handles non-plastic materials including steel, paper, lumber, and other industrial, consumer, and forest products. The company operates two existing facilities in Georgia that support more than 200 jobs.”

“Job creators like Plastic Express choose to expand their footprints in Georgia because they know we’re a great bet,” said Kemp. “More than 70 percent of last year’s economic development projects were expansions of businesses already operating in our state. That’s a testament to our incredible partnership approach and reliable infrastructure, like the Savannah port.”
