ELBERFELD — Phenix Specialty Films and Success Warrick County broke ground Tuesday on the construction of a new Phenix Specialty Films facility at the North Warrick Industrial Park near Elberfeld.
The company is a supplier of food packaging materials with several existing locations across the country.
“Phenix Specialty Films is a supplier of primary flexible packaging films for the food processing industry. We are excited to be locating our new technical service hub and distribution facility in Warrick County. We were looking for a site with forward-thinking local leadership, a strong work ethic and a strategic location with good access to interstate transportation...” said Joe Dobinski, Managing Partner of Phenix Specialty Films.
Phenix supplies food packing film to several companies in the Southwest Indiana region.
The first phase of the new Phenix facility will be 10,500 square feet and house a technical center, warehouse and office space. The company hopes to expand in the future.
“Indiana leads the nation in manufacturing job growth because companies like Phenix Specialty Films are finding success and expanding here in our state,” said Indiana Secretary of Commerce Jim Schellinger. “Phenix Specialty Films’ growth in Warrick County will bring new high-wage jobs to the community and further strengthen the company’s Indiana presence.”
The Indiana Economic Development Corporation offered Phenix Specialty Films up to $400,000 in conditional tax credits based on the company’s plans to create up to 23 new jobs by the end of 2025. These incentives are performance-based, meaning the company is eligible to claim incentives once Hoosiers are hired.
North Warrick Industrial Park is already home to North American Lighting, Pepsi, and a shell building under construction that will be available for lease in 2021.
