A relatively new Wyandot County manufacturer is already undertaking expansion plans that will bring new jobs and investment to the the Village of Sycamore, Wyandot County, and NW Ohio community. Creative Plastic Concepts (CPC) will add 25 new jobs to support its growing operations and invest roughly $3.7 million for a physical expansion of its facility and the acquisition of new machinery and equipment.
Recognized as a leading manufacturer of injection mold plastics, CPC designs, prototypes, vendor selects and produces plastic totes, containers and shelving units for some of the biggest retailers in the United States, including Home Depot, Lowe’s, and Menards.
Through JobsOhio, the Regional Growth Partnership and Wyandot County Office of Economic Development (WCOED) helped the company in securing a Job Creation Tax Credit, which was recently approved by the Ohio Tax Credit Authority.
Beginning in 2013, the WCOED played a key role helping to locate Creative Plastic Concepts in the Village of Sycamore. At the time, the company was considering the purchase of the Sycamore facility that had been shuttered 8 years prior by Toledo Molding and Die. Through the company’s initial commitment to the location, the WCOED helped to obtain grant funds through a Community Development Block Grant and ODOT’s Office of Jobs & Commerce to improve road infrastructure and truck access for the plant. The local Ohio Means Jobs of Wyandot County office also assisted CPC with the recruitment of new employees.
Construction of of 12,600 square foot addition is now underway at the company’s Sycamore location. The work is being completed by Clouse Construction Corp. of New Riegel, OH.
