We are proud of our apprentices and excited to be part of their journey towards a successful long-term career at Greiner Packaging.”Governor Wolf’s budget continues to invest in 21st century manufacturing, workforce development and training programs while also implementing new safeguards to ensure taxpayer dollars for economic development projects are spent appropriately and intended outcomes are met.In addition to investments in apprenticeship and manufacturing training-to-career grant programs, Governor Wolf continues to make “jobs that pay” a top priority.Since taking office, his administration has secured over $2 billion in private sector investments in the commonwealth and commitments for the creation and retention of over 200,000 full-time jobs.Over the past two years, the governor has worked to increase the number of residents with college degrees and high-value industry-recognized credentials and to expand economic opportunities for residents and businesses while fighting for a minimum wage increase.Governor Wolf continues to travel the commonwealth to talk to business owners and workers about what the commonwealth can do to help them thrive. In this year’s budget, Governor Wolf is committed to continuing to grow our economy and create jobs.Greiner Packaging Corporation is a subsidiary of Greiner Packaging International and the company’s first U.S. location was established in Pittston to serve as the company’s corporate headquarters.
