WNA Chattanooga, which makes plastic cups, plates and bowls for the food service industry, is expanding its operations and adding 53 jobs.

The company is slated to invest $21.7 million and add a new production line.

Greg Dempsey, vice president of operations, said Chattanooga was one of several WNA locations competing for the project.

"This community does an outstanding job of partnering with companies to create jobs," he said.

The first phase of the expansion will be the addition of a $6 million production line scheduled for installation later this year.
