A California-based plastics resin company is bringing close to 200 jobs to Pooler, Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp announced Wednesday.
Plastic Express will be located in the Pooler Logistics Center, Kemp said in his announcement made on the Garden City Terminal docks of the Georgia Port Authority. The Pooler center is being developed by Capital Development Partners.
The company will hire about 100 workers to start, with pay ranging from $50,000 to $60,000 a year, Plastic Express President and CEO Ray Hufnagel said. The company plans to have 166 people employed in its third year.
“Georgia’s extensive logistics and transportation infrastructure is literally a gateway to the global economy,” Kemp said. “You can’t talk about logistics assets without talking about the Port of Savannah.”
