Monday night the Plymouth Common Council took the first step in the Tax Abatement process for Viking Paper on Pidco Drive by declaring the property to be in an economic revitalization area.
Justin Mooter, President of Viking Paper told council members the family owned company was founded in 1981 in Toledo and expanded to Plymouth in 1993. They produce single, double and triple wall paper products in a variety of flute heights and currently employ 35 workers in Plymouth.
Viking Paper has proposed a building expansion and new rail spur at an estimated cost of over $2 million dollars. Their capital expenditure for new machinery is expected to be over $1.5 million.
Mooter said, “We are busting at the seams and need this additional space and machinery.”
