Method will open first U.S. manufacturing plant in Chicago

Read the full story in GreenBiz.

Method, the eco-friendly cleaning supply company, is opening its first U.S. manufacturing plant, and residents of Chicago’s South Side can look out for the 150,000-square-foot, LEEDs-certified soap production facility next year.

The San Francisco-based company, which Belgian company Ecover acquired last year, will set up shop on the site of the old Ryerson steel mill as part of the Pullman Park redevelopment project. Pullman is a 174-acre mixed-use development that will need a zoning change for Method, as it initially had not planned for a factory as part of the project. The developer, Chicago Neighborhood Initiatives, is expected to apply for about $10 million in TIF subsidies, according to the Chicago Tribune.
