Operations are now up and running at American Packaging Corporation’s new 215,000 square foot facility in the Town of Chili.
The company has already hired 70 new employees, of which 40 are working at the new site. American Packaging also has about 200 employees working at its long-established plant on Driving Park Avenue in Rochester.
The company plans to create up to 260 jobs over the next five years in this area.
As first announced a year ago, Empire State Development offered $7.7 million in Finger Lakes Forward Upstate Revitalization Initiative grants and $7 million in Excelsior Jobs Program tax credits.
Monroe County also provided incentives for the project.
