Canadian packaging company expands to North Las Vegas

Evanesce Packaging Solutions Inc. on Wednesday announced plans to open its second U.S.-based manufacturing facility in North Las Vegas next year.

Based in Vancouver, British Columbia, the company manufactures sustainable packaging such as take-out containers and utensils that are certified as compostable and plant-based.

The manufacturer plans to hire more than 120 employees at its 114,000 square foot plant, located at 5445 E. North Belt Road, while investing $ 30 million in its first three years. He plans to begin operations at the facility in late spring 2022.

The company’s first plant is located in Early Branch, South Carolina.

CEO and founder Douglas Horne said in a new statement that support from the City of North Las Vegas and state officials helped the company secure a location.

“We look forward to serving our growing customer base in the Western United States and rapidly expanding production of our sustainable and made in the United States food packaging solutions,” he said.

North Las Vegas Mayor John Lee said adding Evanesce to the city will help diversify the economy of southern Nevada.

“Evanesce is another big win for North Las Vegas, landing a forward-thinking company that will create good jobs for our residents and continue to reshape and diversify the economy of southern Nevada,” Lee said in a press release. .
