A Chicago company is expanding and they've staked their claim in Green Country. That means 60 new jobs for our area.

Pechiney Plastic Packaging broke ground Wednesday on their new plant at the Port of Catoosa. The company makes packaging products, like bags, bottles and stretch film.

The new plant will include a 40,000 square foot manufacturing plant, as well as a 90,000 square foot warehouse.

Construction is just beginning and should be finished next year.
