Ensinger Plastics Inc., after more than 20 years operating in a manufacturing facility in an industrial park on Racetrack Road in Washington County, is seeking a site to expand.

"We have two sites -- one in South Strabane, another in North Strabane -- that we are doing our due diligence on for Ensinger," said Ned Shekels, senior vice president with Pennsylvania Commercial Real Estate Inc., a downtown Pittsburgh commercial real estate brokerage.

The initial plan is to build a plant with about 200,000 square feet of space, with room to expand, Shekels said. The German-owned company, which employs about 150 in Washington County, expects to add 150 workers over three years, Shekels said.
