More Jobs Headed to Bowie

Bowie is getting several dozen more jobs. The addition comes with an expansion of a local company. WL Plastics is expanding into the old Wal-Mart building.

The company makes high density polyethylene pipe, used mainly in the energy services industry. The new plant will allow them to increase production.

When the company came to Bowie in 2003, the City was instrumental in recruiting them. Now, the partnership is back in action for the expansion. "They are very cooperative with us; the street department is doing improvements for us all time. Its a wonderful neutral relationship for both of us and it works very well," said Plant Manager Jerry Rogers.

The move will add 45-55 more jobs, with the prospects of having more added in the future. Rogers is happy to see the growth within his company and for the City of Bowie. "Its a win-win situation for everyone," he said.

The grand opening is scheduled from 11:30-1:30 on Tuesday. State Senator Craig Estes is expected for the celebrations.
