Evergreen Plastic Container sets project goals

first_imgCorrection: A previous version of this story misstated Vincent Do’s last name, listed an outdated square footage for the proposed expansion building, and did not mention that the Minnehaha Business Park project was later renamed Velendo Industrial Park.The owners of Evergreen Plastic Container Inc. are working on a plan to expand their Minnehaha-area bottle manufacturing plant, along with a longer-term vision to develop several surrounding parcels as part of a project called Velendo Industrial Park.The project would begin with an addition to the Northeast 47th Avenue plastics facility on an adjacent parcel to the east. Subsequent stages would develop three additional parcels to the east, north and south, creating a 16.3-acre area that stretches from Northeast Minnehaha Street up to Northeast 68th Street.Vancouver engineering firm 2G Associates, Inc., submitted the application on behalf of Evergreen Plastic Container owners Vincent and Helen Do, who also own the surrounding parcels either directly or through a separate company called Velendo Real Estate LLC, according to Clark County records.Evergreen Plastic Container manufactures polyethylene terephthalate plastic containers, which are primarily used as packaging for bottled beverages, condiments and cooking oils. The company also makes plastic “closure” pieces — caps for soda and water bottles with the attached plastic ring to indicate when a bottle has been opened for the first time.last_img read more
