Delta Plastics of Little Rock, Arkansas, which makes irrigation polytube for the agriculture industry, is locating its new venture, Revolution Plastics, in Tulare County.
According to Louis Vasquez, the company’s director of corporate development, Tulare County was chosen after an extensive search throughout California for the best location for their venture.
“The Tulare County Economic Development Corporation was instrumental in assisting us in identifying sites, providing needed information and connecting us with local contacts that assisted us in our site search,” he says.
Revolution Plastics is expected to eventually employ 120 people and will make products from recycled California-sourced ag plastics.
“We are excited about Revolution Plastics coming to the Dinuba area and look forward to having their employees live, shop and dine in our community,” says Dinuba Mayor Scott Harness. The facility will be located just north of the Dinuba city limits and will include the construction of a 75,000-square foot building.
Delta Plastics operates manufacturing facilities in Little Rock and in Mesquite, Texas. The facilities make the company’s signature polytube products, Revolution Bag can liners and other construction and ag films, which will be produced at the new California facility. Delta also operates a recycling facility in Stuttgart, Arkansas, which has diverted over 1.2 billion pounds of waste material from landfills since 1998.
“We look forward to our growth and partnering with the agriculture industry in California as we expand our commitment to waste diversion and recycling throughout the state” says Mr. Vasquez.
