GRAND RAPIDS — Deerfield, Ill.-based Pregis LLC will invest $17 million in an expansion project for its Eagle Film Extruders Inc. facility in Grand Rapids.
The manufacturer of packaging materials for a variety of industries plans to use the investment to raise the roof at its 90,000-square-foot facility, accommodating a new line of extrusion machines, according to a statement.
Pregis acquired Eagle Film Extruders last year. With this expansion project, the business will be renamed under the Pregis brand.
The company employs 80 workers at its Grand Rapids facility and plans to hire an additional 50 workers when the new equipment becomes operational.
