Intertape Polymer growing; $22 million investment expected to add new manufacturing lines

CHATHAM — Intertape Polymer Group plans to invest $22 million in several new manufacturing lines at its facility near Ringgold.

The Pittsylvania County Board of Supervisors voted to offer incentives of up to $144,319 over three years in machine and tools tax grants and a one-time building permit fee waiver at its meeting Tuesday night, when the investment was announced.

The group develops, manufactures and sells “paper and film-based pressure sensitive and water activated tapes, polyethylene and specialized polyolefin films, woven coated fabrics and complementary packaging systems for industrial and retail use,” according to a news release.

The company has expanded many times since starting the facility in 1987.

Chairman Jessie Barksdale said in a prepared statement he is “delighted to hear of Intertape Polymer Group’s significant investment in the community. This investment by the company in new manufacturing lines will result in both retaining and creating good paying jobs into the future, while ensuring Intertape Polymer Groups’ continued success at its Pittsylvania County facility.”

One representative from Intertape said it “seems like every eight year’s we’re here talking about something big. It’d be great to be back in five years for some other project. It’s exciting times for county and Intertape Polymer Group. We’re looking forward to growing.”
