Scavello Lauds PAC Worldwide Expansion into Lower Nazareth, 40th Senate District, Creating More than 160 New Manufacturing Jobs

Harrisburg — Senator Mario Scavello (R-40) hailed the announcement that PAC Worldwide will be expanding its operations to Lower Nazareth Township, creating 160 new jobs in Northampton County.

PAC Worldwide will lease a 420,000-square-foot facility in Lower Nazareth. The project includes leasehold improvements, equipment acquisition and training for its employees. PAC plans to invest more than $28 million into the project, which will create more than 160 new jobs over the next three years.

“One of my top priorities as a state lawmaker has been to foster job creation, improve our business climate and spur economic growth in Pennsylvania,” said Scavello.

PAC received a funding proposal from the Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED) for a $489,000 Pennsylvania First grant, $326,000 in Job Creation Tax Credits to be distributed upon creation of the new jobs, and $73,350 in WEDnetPA funding for employee training.

For more than 40 years, PAC has developed, manufactured, and automated premium packaging solutions for customers worldwide. PAC manufactures protective mailers and specialty packaging for the courier, e-commerce, fulfillment, and distribution markets, and offers a full portfolio of branded and stock packaging with bubble lined and flat solutions.

“Strong communities across the 40th Senatorial District require access to good jobs and a diverse economy that reflects the changing marketplace,” said Scavello. “We need to keep working diligently to feature Pennsylvania’s infrastructural potential and proximity to major markets while streamlining regulations and lowering the cost of doing business in Pennsylvania, so that employers can continue to operate and those looking to relocate will feel confident that Pennsylvania is open for business.”
