Treplar Plans Berkeley County, West Virginia, Food Packaging Complex

Treplar, a joint venture between Turkey-based Klarpet and Triton International Enterprises, plans to establish food packaging operations in Berkeley County, West Virginia. The $50 million project is expected to create more than 600 jobs over the next three years.

Production at the new facility is scheduled for the coming months.

"This venture exemplifies our commitment to producing sustainable and eco-friendly packaging materials and addressing critical waste challenges for the retail food industry,” Treplar President Murat Ogulcan said. “Together, with the great state of West Virginia, we aim to revolutionize the industry and set new benchmarks for sustainability."

Focused on sustainability and environment-friendly food packaging solutions, Treplar's core capability lies in the production of innovative food-packaging products containing a majority of recycled materials. The company is currently testing a new generation of food packaging material that is 100% home compostable.

"I am excited to announce this state-of-the-art project and outstanding economic development investment into our state by Treplar," Governor Jim Justice noted. "The company's investment in our state and their innovative food packaging production facility is tremendous, and I wish them utmost success in West Virginia. I'm honored to add Treplar to our growing list of companies that recognize West Virginia is the best place to raise a family and build a business.”
