Shelburne Plastics has relocated its New Hampshire manufacturing operations from Manchester to Londonderry where it expanded its operation to 35,000 square feet at 27 Industrial Drive.
New Hampshire Division of Economic Development Business Development Manager Michael Bergeron assisted Shelburne in evaluating the benefits of staying and growing in New Hampshire and connected them with NH Business Finance Authority (BFA) Director Jack Donovan. The BFA provided a $750,000 energy efficiency loan for the purchase of new capital equipment.
Shelburne Plastics has been in business over twenty-five years and supplies high quality HDPE and Polypropylene bottles and containers to the dairy, water, juice, chemical and food markets throughout the Eastern United States and Eastern Canada.
Shelburne Plastics has its corporate office in South Burlington, Vermont and has manufacturing sites in South Burlington, Londonderry, New Hampshire and Jessup, Maryland.
“Michael Bergeron and Jack Donovan provided excellent service to me in this important decision to expand in New Hampshire,” said Shelburne Plastics President and CEO Eugene Torvend. “With a loan from the NH Business Finance Authority, we were able to move two production lines from our Maryland facility to New Hampshire, purchase new equipment and retain 25 jobs.”
Shelburne supplies high quality HDPE and Polypropylene bottles and containers to the dairy, water, juice, chemical and food markets throughout the Eastern United States and Eastern Canada.
