CorrChoice Expands Manufacturing in Derry Township, Pennsylvania

PENNSYLVANIA (From news reports) -- CorrChoice, a producer of industrial corrugated paper packaging products, will expand in central Pennsylvania. The project, supported through state funding, is expected to create 79 jobs in the Dauphin and Lebanon County area.

The company and its parent company, Greif, Inc., are global producers of steel, plastic and fibre drums, intermediate bulk containers, reconditioned containers, flexible products, containerboard, and packaging accessories.

CorrChoice will expand into a 350,000-square-foot facility in Derry Township at the border of Dauphin and Lebanon counties. The project will enable the company to expand its corrugated cardboard sheet feeder network and improve its response time.

According to Governor Tom Wolf's office, CorrChoice pledged to invest more than $40 million into the expansion project, which is expected to create 79 new jobs and retain a further 97 jobs in Pennsylvania.

"This investment enables us to continue our growth with existing strategic customers while providing more responsive service on a broader range of products," said Tim Bergwall, Group President, Paper Packaging & Services at Greif, Inc., the parent company of CorrChoice. "This latest CorrChoice expansion better positions us to provide a comprehensive supply of containerboard, sheets, and specialty products to corrugated converters in the Mid-Atlantic Region."

As an incentive, CorrChoice received a funding proposal from the Department of Community and Economic Development for a $200,000 Pennsylvania First grant, $158,000 in Job Creation Tax Credits to be distributed upon the creation of new jobs, and $35,550 in job training funding through WEDnetPA for workforce development. The project was coordinated by the Governor's Action Team.

"We're proud that CorrChoice has selected Pennsylvania as the location for its expansion," Governor Tom Wolf said. "This expansion will bring nearly 80 manufacturing jobs to the central part of the state. Projects like this demonstrate that Pennsylvania's manufacturing sector is on the rise."
