The Lehigh Valley has lured Ocean Spray away from New Jersey. Ocean Spray is closing their Bordentown plant and moving the facility and 250 jobs to Pennsylvania in two years. This news has been confirmed by Ocean Spray.
Bordentown officials were devastated by the news. The plant will close in September 2013. Bordentown employees are being offered jobs along with relocation packages. The Bordentown facility is old and is no longer cost-effective to operate. Ocean Spray will invest $120 million on the new Lehigh Valley facility.
