Silgan Containers is opening a plant in Pennsylvania, creating 29 jobs in Upper Macungie Township, Lehigh County, US.

The steel and aluminum container manufacturer is investing $15m into the facility, which will meet demand from its east coast customers.

The company received funding from the Department of Community and Economic Development including a $120k Pennsylvania First grant, $13,050 WEDnet grant for employee training, and $87k Job Creation Tax Credits for the project.

Silgan and its product is an important part of the supply chain of Nestle Purina and other products being made and distributed from the Lehigh Valley,” said Don Cunningham, president/CEO, Lehigh Valley Economic Development Corporation (LVEDC)​.

The region’s emergence as a major industrial and manufacturing in Pennsylvania continues to create more jobs here​.”

The project was coordinated by the Governor’s Action Team, a group of economic development professionals who report directly to the governor and work with businesses that are considering locating or expanding in Pennsylvania with assistance from LVEDC.
