An Ogden packaging company is expanding, adding up to 40 jobs. Governor Andrew Cuomo announced this week that ProAmpac is building a 25,000 square-foot addition to its existing facility on Manitou Road.
The Collaboration & Innovation Center will focus on packaging development and design and will also host regional and global packaged goods companies and vendors for events and training.
Cincinnati-based ProAmpac is investing $8 million in the center. The company focuses on flexible packaging which includes items like bags, pouches, plastic film and paper.
Empire State Development is providing up to $1.35 million through a capital grant and through the Excelsior Jobs Program in exchange for job creation commitments. The New York Power Authority, Rochester Gas&Electric, Monroe County and Greater Rochester Enterprise are also assisting.
The project is expected to be completed by June 2021.
