Aurora Plastics broke ground on August 4th for an operations expansion in Streetsboro, Ohio.  The expansion will allow the company to add to its thermoplastic compounding capabilities in rigid PVC, rigid PVC alloys and CPVC, providing more than 100 million pounds of new capacity.

“We see continued strength in our end markets for Aurora’s products and services over the next several years.  This investment in added capacity and capabilities allows us to further accelerate our growth and enables innovative new product development,” explains Darrell Hughes, chief executive officer, Aurora Plastics. 

The Streetsboro, Ohio, location is the company’s largest facility and has an excellent track record, delivering the highest quality compounds with outstanding service while operating safely for over twenty years. 

Project completion is expected in the 4th quarter of 2023.  This development complements capabilities at other Aurora Plastics facilities and expansions across the company’s extensive network.  In addition to an increased footprint and additional capacity, the expansion will also create 30 new jobs in Streetsboro.
