May '08
Polymer Group Inc commemorated the start of construction at its approximately $50 million plant expansion in San Luis Potosi, Mexico, with ground breaking ceremonies attended by government officials, and business and community leaders.

The new state-of-the-art, multi-beam spunmelt line will produce high-barrier materials for hygiene and medical applications to meet growing demand from customers in North America, and increase capacity by approximately 15,000 metric tons.

Governor of the State Marcelo De Los Santos spoke at the ceremonies along with company executives about the continued growth of PGI in the region, where it is the market leader. He was joined by Carlos Barcena, Secretary of Economic Development and Jorge Dominguez, Secretary of Labor.

The plant expansion is expected to create more than 40 highly-skilled jobs and also have a far-reaching positive economic impact on the community through its supplier relationships. PGI currently employs approximately 400 people at the plant where it is known for its stability as an employer.

"The high-quality skilled local workforce and support from the government has enabled PGI to grow and thrive at this plant since we began operations in 1994," said PGI's vice president and general manager for Latin America, Rolando Dominguez. "I would like to thank Governor of the State Marcelo De Los Santos and the other dignitaries, and guests for joining us today to mark PGI's continued growth here."
