Injection molded cap manufacturer Phoenix introduced a new plant with storage space in Indiana. The newly renovated Bloomington complex is a former Otis Elevator facility. The site measures 450,000 square feet and is expected to create more than 125 jobs over the next four years.

The process of creating the factory took 18 months, during which time Phoenix collaborated with CSO Architects and The Austin Co. The result is an SQF-certified, energy-efficient facility strategically located near heavy electrical infrastructure, inter- States, railway accesses and customers.

Phoenix used the knowledge and talent of its Greencastle, Indiana plant to fill several positions. Bloomington plant manager Bill Benton said Greencastle employees have moved into management positions at the new site to train new employees.

The addition of the new location will strengthen Phoenix’s capabilities at sites in Iowa, Tennessee, Illinois and Indiana. The expanded production will focus on the company’s core products to meet customer demand.

Phoenix is ​​a full-service packaging manufacturing company for the food and beverage, consumer healthcare, personal and household care, and chemical industries. The company offers services that include in-stock and custom continuous yarn, closure and packaging design, distribution and child-resistant closures, field technical support and personalized customer service.
