Tasus Texas, a plastic parts manufacturer in south Georgetown, is expanding their operations at their plant on 211 Tasus Way. Tasus plans to invest $5.3 million in new production equipment over the next three years.
With the expansion, Tasus expects to increase employment from 155 to 200 employees over the next three years.
Walter Barkalow, director of manufacturing for Tasus in Georgetown, says they expect to add 10 plastic injection-molding machines.
“We have picked up a couple of new strategic customers for Tasus Texas and have received a couple of very large programs from some existing customers,” says Barkalow.
The City Council approved a performance agreement with Tasus at their regular meeting last week. The performance agreement provides a $67,500 grant from the Georgetown Economic Development Corporation, the City’s 4A corporation, to Tasus based on job creation.
The grant is based on $1,500 per job for 45 new jobs over the next three years.
Tasus also plans to spend approximately $760,000 for infrastructure costs and $45,000 for increasing electric capacity as part of the expansion.
Tasus manufactures a variety of plastic molded parts for the automotive industry.
