Sofidel, an Italian manufacturer of tissue paper, broke ground Friday on a $360 million investment that will include construction of a facility that will support 300 jobs. “Sofidel will build here a new modern, integrated plant to serve the south-central and central-western areas of this great country, where we have been operating since 2012,” Luigi Lazzareschi, CEO of Sofidel Group, said in a statement.

“I am glad to announce this new greenfield investment — the second one, after the first made in Ohio. This new investment will support our growth in the U.S. significantly.” Expected to be operational by 2020, the Inola facility will be able to produce 120,000 tons of tissue paper each year. The 1.8-million-square-foot plant is almost 40 percent larger than the Macy’s Fulfillment Center in north Tulsa County.
