Packaging manufacturing plant to close, eliminating 150 jobs

A packaging manufacturing operation in Evansville has announced plans to shut down the plant and move operations to North Carolina.

Officials with Essentra announced Wednesday they will close their offices by October, eliminating 150 jobs, the Evansville Courier & Press reported.

The company's production of health care packaging will move to Charlotte, North Carolina.

In a news release, the company said its decision to shut down operations in Evansville "follows a comprehensive review of its site footprint in the Americas."

The facility being closed was one of 24 packaging facilities sold in late 2014 by Clondalkin, which acquired the Evansville operation, formerly known as Keller Crescent, in 2007.
