Packaging company to open new plant in Delaware next month



NEWARK, Del. (AP) — An Irish manufacturer of paper and plastic bags will create 87 full-time jobs when it opens its first U.S. plant in Delaware.

AB Group Packaging is expected to open its new manufacturing facility in the Newark area next month. An exact date hasn’t been given. A spokesman says the company is currently in leasing negotiations and an exact site has not been determined.

DEDO’s Council on Development Finance on Monday approved a pair of Strategic Loan Fund grants for the company, a $253,365 performance grant and a $120,000 capital expenditure grant once the company makes improvements at the future site of its new plant.

Founded in 1985, AB Group Packaging makes products for commercial retailers such as T.J. Maxx, Nike and Hard Rock Café among other products.
