May 30, 2023
A plastic manufacturing plant in Longview is set to expand with a capital investment of $2.8 million.

The Longview Economic Development Corporation (LEDCO) Board of Directors voted recently to approve the expansion of a Dallas Plastics, LLC., manufacturing facility, with a capital investment of $2.8 million and 19 new jobs.

“Longview has been home to one of our plants for years, and we are excited to continue working with LEDCO and the City of Longview to expand this location,” Dallas Plastics CFO Ken Colbey said. “We appreciate all of the assistance provided, which made Longview the clear choice for this project for both Dallas Plastics and the community.”

The facility, in West Longview, manufactures blown polyethylene film products. It will be expanded with a capital investment of $2.8 million, including the addition of material storage space, more production equipment and 19 new full-time jobs.

“For decades, Dallas Plastics has participated in the economy, industry and life of Longview,” said Mayor Andy Mack. “It is always encouraging when companies see their future here and make investments that will impact our community for years to come.”

“LEDCO’s Business Retention & Expansion program allows us to identify and assist existing industries when they are competing for corporate investments. Longview has worked hard to create and maintain a positive business climate to secure the corporate investments necessary to grow our manufacturing base. Congratulations to the Dallas Plastics team on this expansion," said LEDCO President and CEO Wayne Mansfield.

Dallas Plastics is headquartered in Mesquite and has presence in Longview, Texas; Wentzville, Missouri; Orange, Massachusetts; and Montreal. They serve medical, food and industrial end markets.
