Several plastics industry companies are adding to their work teams to provide significant support to the U.S. economy. 

In Indiana, Crawford Industries officials announced that their plastics firm will bolster its workforce over the next few years. The company is investing $5.2 million in its Hoosier State facility and will add new jobs through 2015

"Crawford Industries is a long-time Indiana citizen and we will work hard to create a low-cost, competitive environment where it can continue to grow and create new jobs for Hoosiers," Indiana Economic Development Corporation president Eric Doden said.

North Carolina's Tarheel Plastics also is searching for talented job seekers to fill vacancies. The Winston-Salem Journal reports that company leaders plan to spend up to $3.5 million to develop a Mocksville plant. 

The company, which already employs full- and part-time personnel in Lexington, is renovating a 41,000-square-foot space in Mocksville as it strives to expand its reach. With the investment, the business will add positions in a variety of areas and could grow quickly. 

Plastics industry firms like Crawford Industries and Tarheel Plastics will provide valuable opportunities to skilled professionals and could help the national economy improve.
