Berry to build headquarters in Evansville

October 30, 2007
Berry Plastics Group Inc., an Evansville-based maker of plastics cups, announced today it will build a $20 million global headquarters and create 250 jobs. The move follows its March consolidation with Covalence Specialty Materials Holding Corp. of Bedminster, N.J.

The headquarters will be at 101 Oakley St. in downtown Evansville.

Berry received nearly $5 million in state and local incentives, according to the Indiana Economic Development Corp.

Berry has 1,200 workers in Evansville, the vast majority of who are blue-collar. The company has another 12,600 employees at 55 other manufacturing facilities.

Apollo Management, a New York private equity firm, owned Covalence and still owns Berry Plastics.
