Pactiv Plant set to reopen Thursday | News
Almost a year after being gutted by a massive fire, the Pactiv Plant in south Bibb County is set to celebrate its reopening next week.
The company has scheduled a ceremony Thursday at the plant site on Airport Drive. Pactiv makes egg cartons and other food packaging from pulp paper, and the $13 million fire apparently started when hot materials caught fire. Last year, about 240 people worked there.
The plant is now re-built. We called Pactiv this afternoon, and they would not comment on whether the plant is already operating.
