American Packaging has decided to construct a new $170M manufacturing plant in Monroe County, New York.
The facility, to be located on Beaver Road in the Town of Chili, will cover a total area of 32,500sq m.
Senator Joseph E. Robach said: "The expansion of American Packaging means new opportunities for the Town of Chili and new jobs for the hard-working people of this region.
“The company’s decision to stay and expand its operations in New York stresses the importance of Finger Lakes Forward and how job-creating projects like this are taking this State to new heights and supporting a more robust economy for generations to come.
“From construction and outfitting, to new advanced manufacturing jobs once the project’s complete, this facility will be a game-changer for our region."
American Packaging plans to break ground on its new plant in early 2017, creating 104 construction jobs. Once operational, the facility will create 366 jobs in the Monroe County by 2021, 262 of which will be permanent jobs.
