The Austrian-based plastic packaging company Alpla, Inc. has announced it plans a $22.4 million dollar investment to establish manufacturing operations at the Kentucky Transpark.
Alpla will locate its operations in Building IV at the Transpark. The building was constructed specutatively by the Bowling Green Area Economic Development Authority, and was on the market for less than a year since its completion. It's the fourth spec building project at the Transpark for the BGAEDA, and Spec Building V is already in the planning stages.
Alpla products include packaging for everyday items such as beverages, motor oils, and cleaning supplies.
Alpla is the first attraction announcement for South Central Kentucky in 2013. In 2012 the Bowling Green Area Chamber of Commerce announced projects totaling 537 jobs to be created or retained with more than $45.6 million in capital investment.
