Portuguese firm opens plant in Kansas City

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- An international firm based in Portugal plans to open a plastic packaging company in Kansas City.

Kansas City officials say the Logoplaste plant will bring about 80 jobs to the city.

Logoplaste plans to invest $31.5 million equipping a 200,000-square-foot building for the plant. The firm manages more than 60 plants in 18 countries.

The Kansas City Star reports the Missouri Department of Economic Development will provide about $2 million in an incentive package for Logoplaste.

The firm makes rigid plastic packaging that companies use for food and beverage, personal care, household care, and oil and lubricants.
