Corrugated Partners Group Plans Franklin County, Pennsylvania, Operations

Corrugated Partners Group, a manufacturing company which produces materials for boxes, plans to establish manufacturing operations in Chambersburg, Pennsylvania. The $52.7 million project is expected to create 80 jobs in Franklin County.

The new 420,000-square-foot facility, located at 1465 Nitterhouse Drive, will serve customers in the mid-Atlantic region and primarily produce single, double, and triple wall corrugated sheets - materials that form the boxes that carry the necessities of life to businesses, hospitals, pharmacies, and homes across North America.

“Manufacturing is an integral part of Pennsylvania’s economy, and I am proud that the DCED team could assist the Corrugated Partners Group as they establish their first location in Pennsylvania with Keystone Sheets,” said DCED Secretary Rick Siger. “This project is creating 80 new jobs and will have a positive economic impact in Franklin County for years to come. The Shapiro Administration is happy to welcome another leading manufacturing company to the Commonwealth.”

Corrugated Partners Group received a funding proposal from the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED) for a $400,000 Pennsylvania First grant and a $160,000 workforce development grant to train workers. The company was also encouraged to apply for tax credits through the Manufacturing Tax Credit Program.

“The collaborative efforts of the Franklin County Area Development Corporation and the Shapiro Administration was instrumental in Corrugated Partners Group’s decision to locate Keystone Sheets in Chambersburg,” noted Mike Ross, President, Franklin County Area Development Corporation. “The creation of 80 manufacturing jobs will have a significant impact on our local economy.”

Corrugated Partners Group is a collaborative network of sheet feeders, producing more than 20% of the country’s corrugated sheet requirements. The network employs over 1,200 individuals across 15 plants in the U.S.
