HAZLE TWP. —More than 250 jobs, including 95 newly created ones, will be coming to southern Luzerne County over the next three years as a packaging firm moves into an under-construction facility in the Humboldt Industrial Park next year.
Tech Packaging Inc., a contract packaging firm based in Jacksonville, Fla., announced Wednesday it is constructing a 223,200-square-foot facility with the aim of opening in the spring.
As heavy machinery readied the lot off Oak Ridge Road, elected officials, economic development leaders and others welcomed Bob Janes, the company’s president.
As guests — including state Sen. John Yudichak, state Rep. Tarah Toohil and Greater Hazleton Chamber of Commerce chief Donna Palermo — listened to speeches and made some of their own, the roar of the bulldozers and rollers echoed in the background.
