Aug. 15, 2023 - Pennsylvania Governor Josh Shapiro on Aug. 3 announced that Corrugated Partners Group plans to invest $52.7 million to build a new corrugated sheet feeder plant in Chambersburg, Pennsylvania. This investment will create at least 80 new jobs in Franklin County within the next three years.

The Corrugated Partners Group's manufacturing operation will be known as Keystone Sheets, and its first location in Pennsylvania will be a 420,000-square-foot facility at 1465 Nitterhouse Drive in Chambersburg. From this facility, the company will be able to serve customers in the mid-Atlantic region and primarily produce single, double, and triple wall corrugated sheets used to produce boxes.

"I'm thrilled that the Commonwealth won this advanced manufacturing project over other states and am pleased to welcome Corrugated Partners Group to Franklin County," said Governor Shapiro.

Corrugated Partners Group received a funding proposal from the 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.

"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."

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 United States.
