Italian tissue paper manufacturer Sofidel opened their new plant in Circleville, Ohio today. The plant is 280-acres, and is Sofidel's largest plant worldwide. “The United States is a crucial market for us and is where we intend to grow,’’ said Luigi Lazzareschi, CEO of the Sofidel Group, which owns subsidiaries in 13 countries, including Sofidel America. “This plant will help us fuel our growth significantly and further our commitment to sustainable, environmentally responsible development. We are extremely proud of this plant and look forward to being an important part of the Circleville community for decades to come.”

Sofidel says they have invested about $400 million in the new site. They say once the facility is running at full capacity, it will employee approximately 700 people. The project was made possible through the support from SelectUSA, JobsOhio, Columbus 2020, the Pickaway Progress Partnership, as well as other public and private partnerships.
