By Tim Wright



Published January 13, 2014
Berry Plastics Group, Inc. plans to relocate manufacturing equipment to four of its Indiana manufacturing operations. The company will invest approximately $31 million for new infrastructure and equipment, and will also transfer existing equipment from other Berry Plastics facilities. The project will begin in early 2014 and will result in the addition of more than 330 production jobs, over the next two years, at the company’s downtown Evansville, Evansville airport, Princeton, and Richmond facilities located within Vanderburgh, Gibson, and Wayne counties in Indiana.

"The relocation of production equipment to Vanderburgh, Gibson, and Wayne counties from other Berry facilities supports our restructuring efforts, announced in November 2013, to optimize our manufacturing operations, maximize production efficiencies, and best service our customers,” says Jon Rich, chairman and CEO of Berry Plastics.
