Pliant Announces Expansion Plans for Dalton, GA Facility

/PRNewswire/ -- Harold Bevis, Chief Executive Officer of Pliant Corporation announced today that Pliant will be keeping the Dalton, GA manufacturing facility open, and in fact, has plans to upgrade and expand it. Stabilized markets, strong customer preference and local and state incentives led to this decision by Pliant.

"The city of Dalton, Dalton Utilities, Whitfield County and the Georgia Department of Economic Development have created a very appealing place to do business and grow. Governor Sonny Perdue's support of our expansion plans and the favorable manufacturing environment were instrumental in our decision. We envision the Dalton facility becoming a second Medical Center of Excellence to complement the Medical Center of Excellence under construction in Danville, Kentucky. Since the closure announcement in April, 2008, Dalton personnel have continued to operate safely, efficiently and professionally. We are very pleased to express our appreciation of that commitment, and we are now able to secure their future with Pliant," stated Mr. Bevis.

Pliant also operates 2 additional facilities in the state of Georgia, and is in the process of expanding their Washington facility in Wilkes County.
