A Wyandot County manufacturer has announced expansion plans that will bring new jobs and investment to the Northwest Ohio community.

Creative Plastic Concepts (CPC) will add 25 new jobs to support its growing operations. Located in the village of Sycamore, the company will invest $3.7 million for expansion of the 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.

The Wyandot County community was successful in attracting this new investment as the project drew strong competition from both Arizona and South Carolina. CPC President Ed Umin cited the company’s workforce and central location as key factors in its decision to expand the Sycamore plant.

Through JobsOhio, the Regional Growth Partnership helped the company in securing a Job Creation Tax Credit, which was approved by the Ohio Tax Credit Authority. The Wyandot County Office of Economic Development also played a key role in moving this project forward. The entity supported the project with assistance form the local Ohio Means Jobs office for the recruitment of new employees.

The Regional Growth Partnership is a private, nonprofit economic development group dedicated to fostering local, national and international business investment opportunities in Northwest Ohio and Southeast Michigan.
