HMTX Industries Plans Pittston, Pennsylvania, Vinyl Tile Manufacturing Plant

HMTX Industries, a global manufacturer of building materials, will locate its new luxury vinyl tile manufacturing facility in Pittston, Pennsylvania. The $25.2 million project is expected to create 115 jobs in Luzerne County over the next three years.

The company is leasing an existing 313,000-square-foot facility at 160-180 Independence Drive. The company will make leasehold improvements, upgrade electrical and parking capacity, purchase equipment, and train its new employees.

“I am very pleased that a leading company like HMTX has chosen Pennsylvania as the home of its new manufacturing facility,” said Governor Tom Wolf. “We successfully competed with other states for this project, and the company’s decision to locate here is a testament to the commonwealth’s thriving and supportive environment for modern manufacturers. I welcome HMTX and the important contributions they will make to Pennsylvania and our economy.”

The company received a funding proposal from the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED) for a $325,000 Pennsylvania First grant, a $100,000 workforce development grant to help train workers, and was encouraged to apply for the department’s Manufacturing Tax Credit (MTC) Program.

HMTX Industries is an $800 million, fourth-generation, family-owned business. The global manufacturer of building materials serves a diverse cross-section of the construction marketplace.
