PEOSTA, Iowa (AP) Berry Plastics Corp. has unveiled its new $8.8 million expansion in Peosta, a project that added more than 70,000 square-feet to its current facility.
The Telegraph Herald in Dubuque says the Evansville, Ind.-based company held a ceremony Thursday morning with local leaders and company officials.
The company announced the project last fall, saying it will create 12 new jobs. The plant makes plastic bottles for the health care, food and personal care markets.
Berry Plastics chief executive, Jonathan Rich, says the company has grown from $100 million in sales in 1990 to more than $5 billion in sales this year.
