Perma R Products Expanding Grenada Operations
The Grenada County Economic Development District (the EDD) announced today that Perma R Products, manufacturer of expanded polystyrene (EPS) technology products for the building and packaging industries, will expand operations and create an additional 15 jobs at its Grenada location.
This project will help to develop their core business and will include the purchase of new equipment and an expansion of their building’s footprint. The Grenada facility annually produces about 30 million board feet of products that include packaging, architectural facades, and insulating sheathing.
“We have been manufacturing in Grenada since 1979 and consider it a viable location for the production and distribution of our product,” said Tim LeClair, president and CEO. “With this expansion, we anticipate a significant increase in production capacity.”
“Companies like Perma R Products are the backbone of our local economy,” said Pablo Diaz, executive director of the EDD. “Their commitment to the local community and their drive to continue to grow their capabilities are indicative of the viability of this area for manufacturing opportunities.”
The Grenada County EDD worked along with the company to secure resources to assist with the expansion.
Perma R Products is headquartered in Grenada and their facility here is one of three U.S. manufacturing locations for the company. Their EPS technology can be fashioned into a variety of products for the building and packaging industries.
