Flexible Packaging Manufacturer PakLab Expands Its Orland, Indiana, Production Center
The Chino, California, based company, with corporate offices in Commack, New York, will equip its current 100,000 square-foot facility in Orland. The new equipment, which will be installed by this fall, will allow the company to promote sustainability through production of flexible, convenience packaging.
Founded in 1985, PakLab will focus its growth on increasing production of flexible packaging, which includes pouches that can be used for products including food, consumer goods and cosmetics. With a smaller carbon footprint and energy savings when compared to glass and plastic packaging, PakLab produces flexible packaging as a cost-effective way to help clients utilize environmentally-friendly containers.
“We’ve enjoyed building a great relationship with the town of Orland and with Indiana,” said Mario Tomei, President of Paklab’s flexible packaging division. “We take great pride in being able to bring forward the investments that will in turn bring economic opportunities to the community.”
“PakLab had multiple options on where to locate its growth, and it chose Indiana,” said Eric Doden, President of the Indiana Economic Development Corporation. “With Indiana’s great location at the crossroads of America, Indiana companies don’t need to travel far to reach their customers. And with Hoosiers comprising the most dedicated workforce in the nation, Indiana is a state that works for growing businesses.”
As an incentive, the Indiana Economic Development Corporation offered PakLab up to $70,000 in training grants based on the company's job creation plans. These incentives are performance-based, meaning until Hoosiers are hired, the company is not eligible to claim incentives. The town of Orland approved additional incentives at the request the Steuben County Economic Development Corporation.
