Pure Renewables USA, a fibers startup, wants to lease an 800,000-square-foot warehouse in the Alliance area of Fort Worth to manufacture its products, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported.
The facility could create 370 jobs by the end of next year and 450 jobs by the end of 2022. The jobs would pay an average of $42,000 a year, the newspaper reported. Eventually, the facility could be expanded to 1.3 million square feet.
The Tulsa, Oklahoma-based company makes the fibers that go into wet wipes, coffee filters, and bandages.
Before the five-year deal can be completed, the Fort Worth City Council will need to vote on approving $3.3 million in tax abatements.
Pure Renewable’s founder and CEO Joy Nunn told the Star-Telegram that she couldn’t discuss details of the potential deal because of confidentiality agreements.
