Department of Community and Economic Development Acting Secretary Neil Weaver recently discussed the Wolf Administration’s ongoing commitment to Pennsylvania’s manufacturing industry and saw firsthand the results of the commonwealth’s investments in Bucks County manufacturers.
Weaver toured three businesses that have received more than $1.1 million in total funding from the state:
– National Towelette, Inc.: A manufacturer of disinfectant wipes in Bensalem that received $250,000 through DCED’s Neighborhood Assistance Program
– FairyGene, Inc.: A female/minority-owned private label cosmetics and skincare manufacturer in Bristol that received a total of $450,000 through NAP, the Keystone Innovation Zone program and the Pennsylvania Minority Business Development Authority
– Americhem/LTL Color Compounders, Inc.: A thermoplastics producer in Morrisville that received $500,000 through NAP
“The Wolf Administration has been unwavering in its support of Pennsylvania manufacturers, and it’s wonderful to see the positive impacts our investments have on companies and their communities,” said Weaver. “From disinfectant wipes to cosmetics, a wide variety of products are manufactured here in Bucks County. It’s very encouraging to see these businesses continue to grow and succeed.”
“We’re excited to once again showcase the incredible impact that the administration’s investments have had on our county’s businesses,” said Jeff Darwak, executive director, Redevelopment Authority of the County of Bucks. “We have partnered with DCED on projects for many years and value the commitment that their staff has to ensuring businesses throughout the state are able to utilize incentives to not only remain in Pennsylvania, but to grow here as well. The prosperity of our local businesses is vital to maintaining a healthy economy in our corner of the state, and the impact that they have on our communities is immeasurable.”
