Plastics

The plastics industry has established a stronghold in the Central Pennsylvania region.  This may be in some part related to our Plastics & Technology Resource Center located at Penn College of Technology.  Or, our close proximity to over 40% of the US population or even our World Recognized Private/Public rail service.  Join companies like Resilite, Trinity Plastics, Shop-Vac and Advanced Drainage Technologies by locating in our region.
