MOORESVILLE — Wet wipes. Where do they come from? Well, many are produced in Morgan County by Nice-Pak.
The Mooresville company describes itself as "the leading global producer of wet wipes." The demand for its products is so great that Nice-Pak is expanding. It will build a new facility just off State Road 67, about five miles from its existing plant in Mooresville, southwest of Indianapolis.
The 1.2 million square-foot manufacturing and distribution facility is expected to be up and running in 2022 and employ about 150 people. When done, it will be about eight times larger than the current Mooresville plant, which will remain in operation. The cost is about $165 million.
"Our new investment in Mooresville is an important milestone in our mission of helping the world stay healthy and well,” said Robert Julius, Chairman and CEO of Nice-Pak. " We could not think of a better partner than the Mooresville community in our ongoing efforts to meet the increasing demand for wipes -- essential products in helping to protect against COVID-19.”
"Nice-Pak manufactures products that are critical in our fight against COVID-19, and we couldn't be happier to support their Indiana expansion," said Governor Eric Holcomb." The company's commitment to sustainability and corporate social responsibility is admirable, and we're grateful they have chosen to grow their Mooresville campus and create 150 new career opportunities for Hoosiers."
Nice-Pak has been operating in Mooresville since the 1970's. According to the company, the new facility will remain zero landfill as part of Nice-Pak’s “war on waste” that includes more efficient energy and water use, and a reduction of greenhouse gas emissions.
Nice-Pak and its sister company, PDI, employ approximately 2,850 associates in the United States, United Kingdom and Germany. The company is hiring for many positions at its current location in Mooresville.
