Schless Bottles Relocates-Plans Allentown, Pennsylvania, Operations

Schless Bottles, a premium plastic jars and bottles manufacturer, plans to relocate manufacturing operations to Allentown, Pennsylvania. The $7.5 million project is expected to create 98 jobs within the next three years.

The investment will include building acquisition and renovation costs.

“I’d like to thank Governor Shapiro, the Governor’s Action Team and the people here in Allentown for helping to make this relocation happen,” said Mark Schlesinger, Executive Director, Schless Bottles. “We look forward to being part of the Allentown community for many years to come, and are excited to bring nearly 100 new jobs to the area.”

For its expansion, Schless Bottles received a funding proposal from the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED) for a $300,000 Pennsylvania First grant and a $196,000 grant to train new workers.

“Governor Shapiro and I are working hard to make the Commonwealth a leader in innovation, job creation, and economic development, and Schless Bottles’ decision to relocate to Pennsylvania is another great example of how we’re making that happen,” noted DCED Secretary Rick Siger. “Manufacturing is one of the Commonwealth’s key industries, and we’re going to strengthen the sector by continuing to make strategic investments in growing companies like Schless. I’m thrilled this manufacturer chose Allentown as their new home.”

Schless Bottles manufacturers premium plastic jars and bottles, producing more than 250 million PET bottles annually for mid-sized corporations.
