International company to bring 30 jobs to Northeast Ohio
Polytech America LLC announced plans to open a new production site in Canton, bringing 30 jobs and a $15 million investment to Northeast Ohio. This leading film metal lamination company serves the food and beverage industry with eco-friendly technology for both protective and decorative uses in the production of food cans, beverage, aerosol cans and more.
The new facility represents the company’s entry into the Midwest. Polytech leaders selected Northeast Ohio for its business-friendly environment, market access and available talent.
“We are excited to set up a new operating site in Stark County. This location provides very good access to our customers and our company. We are looking forward to establishing solid relationships with local and state business supporting the team for the long term.” said Naomi Yabuta, CEO of Polytech America.
An economic development team including Stark Economic Development Board, Perry Township Government, JobsOhio and Team NEO have been working with Polytech America to support the company’s expansion into its new location.
“We welcome Polytech to Stark County and look forward to working with them to ensure their success here,” said Ray Hexamer, president of the Stark Economic Development Board. “We are pleased the company has chosen Canton and confident its leaders will find the area’s workforce and business community to be strong and supportive.”
Team NEO CEO Bill Koehler added, “With a long history of manufacturing strength, and an active advanced manufacturing community, Northeast Ohio holds the deepest respect – and ample opportunity – for innovative manufacturers such as Polytech. Polytech is an ideal fit for our region, which offers easy market access and an exceptionally strong food industry. Team NEO, along with our local partners and JobsOhio, welcomes the Polytech team.”
