Pregis to invest more than $11M in Newton plant

Nov. 9. Pregis, a manufacturer and provider of protective packaging products for end markets, plans to expand its existing manufacturing facility in Newton where it produces temporary protective films.

Over the next three years, Pregis plans to create 10 jobs and invest more than $11 million in new production lines and building improvements. Salaries for the new employees will vary by position, but the new positions will meet Catawba County’s average annual wage of $48,028.

The manufacturing facility in Newton has been producing water-based acrylic adhesives for use in the automotive, transportation, building and construction, and other industrial markets since the early 1990s.

Pregis operates more than two dozen North American facilities – two of which are located in North Carolina – and additional manufacturing operations across Europe. Pregis employs 67 people at its Newton facility as part of an international workforce of more than 3,000 professionals.

The renovation project includes a facility expansion to accommodate the installation of new manufacturing equipment, as well as warehouse space.
