HENRIETTA, N.Y. (WROC) — Premier Packaging Corporation (PPC) opened a new 105,000-square-foot facility in Henrietta Wednesday, which will create an estimated 37 jobs and retain 52 more.
PPC is a Henrietta-based company that provides paper packaging to large national food packaging, digital photofinishing, and medical device companies.
PPC was acquired by a multinational, multi-industry company, DSS, in 2010, according to officials.
The Rochester Institute of Technology, which is also located in Henrietta, is one of less than 10 schools in the country to offer a degree in Packaging Science.
The new plant is located in the Wiregrass Business Park.
“Premier Packaging Corporation’s new facility reinforces the company’s commitment to the Finger Lakes, a region that offers the “whole package” to top-notch businesses looking for skilled talent,” said EDS Commissioner and President & CEO Hope Knight. “New York’s targeted support for forward-thinking projects like this one will continue to strengthen the economy, creating top-quality jobs in Monroe County and across the state.”
