Metal food packaging manufacturer Silgan Containers is investing $9.7 million in its Lancaster County operations in a move expected to create 16 jobs during the next five years.
Silgan Containers, founded in 1987, makes metal containers for shelf-stable food and general product lines. Its Lancaster County facility, located at 1531 Camp Creek Road, manufactures cans for customers across the Southeast.
“Silgan is proud to make this investment in Lancaster, S.C., which will provide job security and opportunities to our great team of employees in Lancaster,” John Wilbert, Silgan plant manager, said in a news release. “The state and county’s positive business climate combined with an excellent workforce have helped make this investment possible.”
The expansion is expected to be completed by the end of 2021. Employment information is available online.
“Silgan Containers is one of our most respected manufacturers, and the new jobs and investment are very much welcomed and appreciated,” said Lancaster County Council Chair Steve Harper.
