East-Terra hosted meeting between Indy Chamber and Chinese investment delegation and several groups associated with economic development in Indiana

In July, 2016, East-Terra hosts meeting between Indy Chamber and Chinese investment delegation and several groups associated with economic development in Indiana. Represented at the meeting was US Congressman Andre Carson, Indiana Governor Mike Pence, EmployIndy, the Indiana Economic Development Corporation (IEDC), The International Center, Purdue University School of Engineering and the City of Indianapolis.

Together we successfully brought the investment of $5million to Indy and the creation of no less than 30 good paying technician jobs to Indy’s east side.  We are blessed to enjoy the support of our business community.  It’s a win-win scenario.  We increase Indiana’s plastics recycling rates while decreasing landfilling of perfectly recyclable materials. The expansion will double East Terra’s production and storage capacity to allow us to meet the growing demands of our customers who are typically plastic product manufacturers.
