Berry Global already announced plans to expand its manufacturing facility, but now we know it will be in the Tri-State. The company plans to add as many as 150 new jobs by 2020 in downtown Evansville.
Berry Global will be funneling more than $70 million into new equipment. It will add four new lines to produce plastic packaging at its downtown plant.
The Indiana Economic Development Corporation gave the company $1.5 million in conditional tax credits if it would agree to expand locally. But those credits won’t take effect until Hoosiers are hired at the facility.
