Alliance Barrier Films has announced plans to build new manufacturing facility in Washington, US, with an investment of about $16m.
The company intends to buy additional manufacturing equipment for its 17,600ft² facility. The equipment will produce flat and gauge band free films.
Alliance Barrier Films owner Tom Huff said that the company’s ability to produce new, cost effective films will be unparalleled in the industry.
"I have a long and very successful history with Daviess County, Ind. and I look forward to continuing these relationships and successes in the future," Huff added.
Alliance Barrier Films received up to $250,000 in conditional tax credits and up to $50,000 in infrastructure improvements from The Indiana Economic Development Corporation.
The new facility is expected to create about 48 jobs by 2016.
Alliance produces high-barrier blown films by using coextruded film technology that can be used in food and converter packaging.
