Yesterday, executives of Tri-Pac will celebrate the grand opening of its new manufacturing facility in South Bend. The company will be joined by state and local officials. 
Tri-Pac, a chemical manufacturer of aerosols and liquids, confirmed plans in 2017 to relocate its medical device, over-the-counter and specialty chemical manufacturing operations from Michigan, to South Bend. The new $8 million, 65,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art manufacturing facility is located on 10 acres in St. Joseph County and is already operational. To support its new Indiana operations, Tri-Pac committed to creating up to 70 new jobs by the end of 2020 and has already hired nearly half of these positions.
