GREENVILLE, TX — Sabert Corporation has begun construction for its new manufacturing facility, located in Greenville, TX. In addition to manufacturing plastic packaging, this facility will also produce 100 percent compostable packaging made from plant based materials. The occasion was marked by a ground breaking ceremony led by Sabert founder and CEO, Albert Salama who was joined by Thomaz Gruber, Senior Vice President of Operations & Supply Chain, Steve Roberts, Greenville Plant Manager, Hunt County Officials, Greenville City Council members, Greenville Electric Utility System members, and Greenville Board of Development Directors.
Albert Salama thanked Hunt County and the City of Greenville for their support during the building process and spoke about the significance of the facility.
"At the heart of this facility we will build, is our commitment to the environment," Salama continued. "The more sustainable options we can offer our customers, the more we help the environment by replacing products that might end up in a landfill. We aim to make packaging that is compostable and will disintegrate into natural elements in a compost environment providing for a better future for us and our children."
The Greenville facility, expected to be fully operational by early 2019, will bring over 125 jobs to the area. The addition of this facility, which will be Sabert's first American facility to manufacture 100 percent compostable food packaging, speaks to the company's 35-year commitment to quality, innovation, and sustainability.
"We commit to building a world class facility, create many jobs and provide our workers with a safe and enjoyable organization, helping to expand our community, deliver more options to our customers and be a valuable corporate citizen," Salama said.
