MISSISSAUGA, ONTARIO (Nov. 22, 3:30 p.m. ET) — Specialty packaging producer IntraPac Group Inc. is relocating its Swedesboro, N.J., plant to Lawrenceburg, Ind.
IntraPac started construction on a 80,000-square-foot facility in September and expects to be operational in the new locale in February. The project should create up to 63 jobs in Lawrenceburg, according to a news release from the Indiana Economic Development Corp.
