Huhtamaki has been awarded $500,000 in state funding from Empire State Development for the company’s new flexographic printing machinery and equipment.
The Empire State Development’s Board of Directors met this week and approved the funding. Huhtamaki was one of several businesses to receive a grant.
“Today’s action shows we are continuing to leverage private investment and optimize limited state resources to retain and create much-needed jobs across the state,” said Empire State Development President, CEO and Commissioner Kenneth Adams.
“Every day companies are choosing to make substantial job-creating investments in our communities instead of leaving the state, proving that New York is truly open for business,” Adams added.
Huhtamaki, a multi-national company that produces consumer packaging products used in food, beverage, retail, and other non-food industries, has purchased and installed new flexographic printing machinery and equipment to increase production capacity, add efficiency, and reduce waste.
