On June 21, the TekniPlex Executive team took part in the ground breaking ceremony for the new dedicated molded fiber facility located in Van Wert, Ohio (US).
Planned to commence operations in early 2024, the 200,000-square-foot facility will further expand the company’s capacity and capabilities in molded fiber solutions – a burgeoning, sustainability-minded niche. The plant will produce a variety of products, including high-performance egg cartons. For TekniPlex, the facility – its eighth in the specialty molded fiber sector alone – is the latest news amid a decisive molded fiber market push, one now comprising some $350 million in investments.
