DSM expanding, adding jobs
A plastics manufacturing company is adding jobs in Evansville.
DSM Engineering Plastics has announced plans to expand its local operation and create up to 25 new jobs by the end of the year.
The Netherlands-based company says in a news release it will renovate and equip its 175,000-square-foot facility on W. Mill Road over the next five years.
The company says it’s already added additional weekend production shifts and now sustains around-the-clock operations at the Evansville plant.
DSM says its increased production is allowing it to provide more efficient and reliable production of its high performance engineering thermoplastics, which are used in products including air intake manifolds, mobile connectors, food packaging, and office chairs.
State data shows one in five Indiana residents are employed in the manufacturing industry, with about 8,500 manufacturing facilities located across the state.
