Sabert Corp., Sayreville, N.J., began construction on its new manufacturing facility in Greenville, Texas.

The facility will manufacture plastic packaging and 100% compostable packaging made from plant-based materials.

"At the heart of this facility we will build, is our commitment to the environment,” says Albert Salama, founder and CEO. "The more sustainable options we can offer our customers, the more we help the environment by replacing products that might end up in a landfill. We aim to make packaging that is compostable and will disintegrate into natural elements in a compost environment providing for a better future for us and our children."

The Greenville facility, expected to be fully operational by early 2019, will bring over 125 jobs to the area and is Sabert's first U.S. facility to manufacture 100% compostable food packaging.

"We commit to building a world-class facility, create many jobs and provide our workers with a safe and enjoyable organization, helping to expand our community, deliver more options to our customers and be a valuable corporate citizen," Salama adds.
