Polymer Logistics Begins Construction On Dublin, Georgia, Distribution Hub
According to company officials, the new service center will use the latest technology for energy conservation, product handling and high-capacity transport container washing. Located near Interstate 16 on a seven-acre lot, the building will have 12 truck doors and parking for 50 cars.The new facility is expected to create 110 new jobs when open in early 2017.
“We see the potential for substantial growth over the next decade and beyond that will bring a positive economic impact to this community. Georgia is truly business-welcoming state, and we certainly appreciate the many incentives that we have received as a part of this project and are undoubtedly excited about our future here,” said Fred Heptinstall, CEO of Polymer Logistics North America.
Polymer Logistics’ extensive range of returnable transport, storage, and display products includes collapsible bins, folding, nesting and stackable crates, together with reusable dollies and pallets. These products offer substantial costs benefits, are more environmentally friendly than traditional one-way transit packaging, and are robust enough to withstand the rigorous demands of retail supply chain logistics for many years, a company spokesperson said. Polymer Logistics’ most recent innovation is the wood grain RPC, which brings an upscale look to stores and drives sales and shopper engagement.
“The Development Authority is proud to welcome Polymer Logistics to Dublin-Laurens County. The company is another well respected international company investing here and a great addition to our growing logistics sector. We are especially proud of the 110 new jobs for our community and the economic impact this project will provide our citizens,” said Roger Folsom, Dublin-Laurens County Development Authority Chairman.
