Corrugated Partners Group, a maker of cardboard products for the packaging industry, intends to invest $52.7 million to build a new manufacturing operation in Pennsylvania.
The maker of materials for boxes will create at least 80 new jobs, with Corrugated Partners Group calling the new operation Keystone Sheets, according to a news release from Pennsylvania’s Department of Economic and Community Development (DCED).
The 420,000-square-foot facility in Chambersburg off Interstate 81 will serve customers in the mid-Atlantic region and primarily produce single-, double-, and triple-wall corrugated sheets.
Corrugated Partners Group received a funding proposal from the DCED for a $400,000 Pennsylvania First grant and a $160,000 workforce development grant to train workers.
Corrugated Partners Group is a collaborative network of sheet feeders, producing more than 20% of the country’s corrugated sheet requirements. The network employs more than 1,200 people across 15 plants in the United States, according to the news release.
