Team Madison County along with Novolex officials announced today that Novolex is investing $2.6 million to expand operations at its Jackson facility at 111 Edwards Dr. in the Bonwood Industrial Park. This expansion will create 20 new jobs in Madison County, allowing the company to continuously meet growing customer demands.

“Novolex is a strong member of Jackson’s business community,” said City of Jackson Mayor Jerry Gist. “This expansion shows the strength and success of the company and we appreciate its investment in our city.”

“The additional jobs added by Novolex is most welcome news to our county,” said Madison County Mayor Jimmy Harris. “We appreciate the company for the strong commitment it has made to help our county foster growth. Madison County continues to improve because of industries like Novolex.”

Novolex has been in Jackson since 1963 as a manufacturer of paper bags for the foodservice industry. They currently employ many local citizens at the Jackson facility and are involved with multiple charitable organizations in Jackson. With the recent combination of Hilex Poly Co., LLC and Duro Hilex Poly, LLC, formerly Duro Bag Manufacturing Company, under the umbrella of parent company, Novolex Holdings, Inc., this creates a thriving manufacturer with an eye on future economic growth.

“I am proud that Novolex can bring these new jobs to our community,” said Jim Smith, Plant Manager, Novolex in Jackson. “The teamwork of our local officials, the Jackson Chamber, and the State of Tennessee made this happen.
