Pratt Industries Expands Pennsylvania Operations

Corrugated packaging company Pratt Industries plans to expand its operations in Pennsylvania. The $500 million project is expected to create hundreds of jobs over the next ten years.

The investment will include recycling, remanufacturing and clean energy infrastructure at the company’s existing facility in Cumberland County, Berks County, Montgomery County, and Lehigh County.

“Pratt Industries is proud to employ more than 800 Pennsylvanians across the state in high-paying, green collar, advanced manufacturing jobs, and our total cumulative investment in Pennsylvania now exceeds $500 million,” said Anthony Pratt, Pratt Industries Executive Chairman. “As part of that commitment, and as a result of Governor Shapiro’s leadership, I’m honored today to pledge a further investment of $500 million in recycling, remanufacturing and clean energy infrastructure over the next ten years, to create hundreds of new jobs in the great state of Pennsylvania. Our investments will allow the company to grow for years to come, supporting our customers, employees and the community.”

Pratt Industries is the fifth largest corrugated packager in the U.S. and the world’s largest, privately-held producer of 100% recycled containerboard. The company operates manufacturing facilities in more than 25 states.

“The Shapiro Administration is thrilled to have Pratt Industries make this new commitment to the Commonwealth,” noted Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development Secretary Rick Siger. “We compete every day with other states and countries for global business investments like this one. Under Governor Shapiro’s leadership, Pennsylvania is working aggressively to keep companies here and attract businesses from around the world looking to grow and succeed in our Commonwealth. We’re moving at the speed of business to ensure more companies like Pratt Industries choose to grow here in Pennsylvania.”
