Hilex Tour: Jacksonville, Florida

As you may recall from one of my previous blog posts, I am planning to visit a number of our facilities in the upcoming months. I enjoy being able to travel and visit our manufacturing and recycling facilities to meet our new employees, learn how each plant operates, and to see the projects being completed at each plant first-hand. 
 
Recently I took a trip down to our manufacturing plant in Jacksonville, Florida. While in the Sunshine State, I saw Hilex employees working hard at making new plastic bags.
 
As you can see in the pictures below, the employees at our facility in Jacksonville were overseeing the production of plastic film. Plastic film may be light, but the film wrapped around these rollers can weigh several thousand pounds. Check out this post from my visit to Richmond, Virginia, to see the variety of colored film that can be produced in our facilities. 
 
Make sure to check our blog frequently to see what other locations I visit. Do you have a Hilex facility in your area? Share where you are by commenting on our Facebook page or mentioning us on Twitter
