Polyester Film Plant Ready for Startup in Decatur

Polyplex plans to start up its $187 million plant in the coming week. The company is waiting for its Certificate of Occupancy, which is in the final stages of being granted.
About 100 workers have been hired at the plant making an average annual wage of $48,000. Eventually Polyplex expects to have a total of 150 workers there.
Officials awarded Polyplex $5.5 million in property tax abatements over 10 years and $5.75 million in waived sales taxes during construction.
Startup of the Decatur plant was delayed for several months by winter weather and some regulatory issues.
