A Williams County firm is making major moves with the purchase of a closed down facility in Bluffton, Indiana, formerly owned by Buckhorn Plastics.

The Holiday City, Ohio-based company will invest more than $27 million to purchase and equip Buckhorn’s former 170,000-square-foot facility in Bluffton. The facility transitioned into a new operation for 20/20 Custom Molded Plastics following Buckhorn’s completion of its consolidation.

The company plans to hire many of its workers, ultimately creating up to 155 jobs by 2020.

20/20 Custom Molded Plastics currently employs more than 220 people at its Ohio facility, and is in the process of doubling its production capacity with this new facility. The company has already hired many of the former Buckhorn employees in Bluffton, and is currently hiring press operators, forklift drivers, molding supervisors, setup specialists and maintenance professionals.

20/20 Custom Molded Plastics also announced the expansion at its Holiday City plant. The plastic-injection molding firm is expanding for the fifth time since its inception in 1999. It will bring the total floor plan of the Holiday City facilities to 700,000 square feet.
