Allied Reprocessing will invest $1.1 million to expand its current 100,000 square foot operations center in Ripley, Tennessee, with plans to create 31 jobs in Lauderdale County.
Allied Reprocessing specializes in separating chrome-plated polymer parts and reprocessing them into reusable pellet materials for automotive suppliers.
Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development said as Allied Reprocessing continues to acquire new business, this expansion allows them to add new lines to process agricultural plastic waste, such as cotton bale wrap, and separate mixed plastics. The company will also be able to purchase new equipment that will allow them to process agricultural film and sort various plastics by color.
“A keystone of Governor Bill Haslam’s Jobs4TN strategy is investing in incumbent businesses,” Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development Commissioner Bill Hagerty said. “Located in the heart of the nation’s distribution center, Allied Reprocessing can take advantage of our state’s exemplary logistical infrastructure, providing services through the Southeast. I am pleased Allied Reprocessing is reinvesting in Tennessee and creating valuable new jobs for the community.”
