Centerville company expands, adds employees

A Centerville company that makes plastic products has expanded, hired 10 new employees and expects to fill another 10 positions this year.

Sunbelt Plastic Extrusions, which has been in Centerville for 32 years, built a new 16,000-square-foot manufacturing plant at 949 Carl Vinson Parkway next to its existing 15,000-square-foot facility, said General Manager Tim Roberts. The company will add six new production lines initially.

The company manufactures plastic signs, price-tag holders and displays for retail stores, Roberts said.

The new jobs are mostly for its production line, but the company needs to fill some professional positions such as supervisors and managers, he said. The company currently has about 75 employees. Anyone interested in a job should apply at the company.

The expansion was needed because “we’ve seen a positive impact from the economy,” he said. “At least it’s stabilized. Some retail stores are refurbishing.”

Sunbelt was bought by Rockford, Ill.-based Southern Imperial Inc. in 2012.
