Staunton River Plastics Plans Manufacturing Plant in Hurt, Virginia

Staunton River Plastics, a manufacturing subsidiary of Rage Corp, plans to invest $34 million in a new production plant at Southern Virginia Multimodal Park in Hurt, Virginia.

The facility, which expects to hire 200 associates during the next four years, manufactures plastics for the beauty and health product industry.

The company will build its plant on the site of the former Burlington Industries textile plant that closed in 2007. Staunton will be the first company to locate in the Multimodal Park, located in the southern portion of the state, an economic development effort led by the Staunton River Regional Industrial Facility Authority.

The project is eligible for more than $3.9 million in state and local incentives. Staunton expects to complete the first phase of construction and begin operations by the middle of next year.

Parent company RAGE was created in 1964 to meet the growing need for the advancement of polymer processing. RAGE launched its first production facility in Columbus, Ohio, and routinely invests in facilities and equipment to meet the constantly changing needs of the industry. Headquartered in Hilliard, Ohio, RAGE also has operations in Altavista, Virginia.
