Fort Wayne Paper Straw Maker Expanding Yet Again

The only large-scale paper straw maker in North America is in Fort Wayne, and it’s expanding yet again.

Since being acquired by Hoffmaster Group a year ago, Aardvark Straws is opening a brand new manufacturing facility in Allen County.

Company President Rory Leyden says the nine-million dollar project is the result of a rapidly-growing demand for alternatives to plastic straws. The highest demand is on the east and west coast, in places like Seattle, San Francisco, or New York City where plastic straws have been banned.
