August 26, 2006|by TARA REILLY

A book component printing and manufacturing company plans to build a 50,000-square-foot paper converting plant north of Hagerstown.

Phoenix Color Corp., which has two facilities in Washington County, expects to create 52 jobs for the new plant.

The building will be at 18516 Henson Blvd. The $5 million project is planned to be completed next month.

Cassandra H. Latimer, deputy director of the Hagerstown-Washington County Economic Development Corp., said by phone Thursday that the paper converting facility will convert paper from large rolls into sizes used for manufacturing operations.

"The new Paper Converting Building will bring additional efficiencies and cost savings to the company's manufacturing operations, which produces high-quality book components right here in Washington County," EDC Executive Director Timothy R. Troxell said in a written statement.

Guy Bonner, project manager for Phoenix Color, could not be reached for comment.

Phoenix Color, in Washington County since 1992, supplies book components, manufacturing services and technology solutions to book publishers, according to the statement. It also has offices in New York and New Jersey.
