It's time to touch up that resume and put on a suit.
Evansville-based Berry Plastics is adding 120 new jobs to the city over the next three years. The company says it's consolidating offices in other locations, and expanding their business.
The announcement that Berry Plastics is adding 120 jobs, comes just days after they revealed plans to buy Rexam Beverage and Specialty Closers.
CEO of Berry Plastic, Jon Rich, says the needs of the station means more hired help.
"As we grow our business, of course, our need to serve our customers, provide better customer service, grows."
He says that most of these jobs will be in customer service, financing, and administration. Starting salaries will be between $30 and $40 thousand a year plus benefits.
The city provided tens of thousands in tax incentives along with 50 to 60 thousand to match the cost of training new employees.
"These tax incentives will be spread out over ten years, so it's a relatively small investment to help the company expand here in southwestern Indiana."
Mayor Weinzapfel says it's an example of why a "conference of mayors" report projected Evansville will be the first Indiana city to return to pre-recession job levels.
"One, we have a strong base of a diversified economy, but we're doing the right things with regard to attracting new jobs and helping businesses expand, which is going to allow Evansville to lead the state out of this recession and into recovery."
Berry Plastics says it has already started the recruiting process. Half of the positions are expected to be filled by the end of this year.
