Sabert Corp. recently announced plans to open a new manufacturing plant in Greenville, Texas. The new facility is expected to bring approximately 125 new jobs to the area over the next three years.
Construction of the approximately 450,000-square-foot facility is scheduled to begin by the end of 2017 with a fully operational plant expected by the end of 2018. This will mark Sabert's first North American facility to offer 100 percent compostable food packaging.
"Sabert is very excited to partner with the city of Greenville and Hunt County in the development, construction and future operation of our newest manufacturing facility," said Steve Roberts, plant manager for the new Greenville facility. "Our vision is to be the most admired company in our industry. We look forward to making this vision a reality by providing innovative and sustainable food packaging products to our customers, providing a safe and enjoyable work environment, and by being a model corporate citizen in our community."
