Stuffed Puffs Manufacturing Firm Expands Operations in PA

by John Jordan Globest.com
Chocolate marshmallow manufacturer Stuffed Puffs is expanding its operations in Pennsylvania to a 150,000-square-foot building here in the Lehigh Valley.

The food processor will create 134 new full-time jobs in connection with the expansion, according to state officials. The firm secured approximately $1.1 million in incentives in the form of grants and tax credits from the commonwealth.
The confectionary manufacturer will be located at the former Guardian Life property, owned by JG Petrucci, to manufacture chocolate stuffed marshmallows and plans to make significant improvements to the property. Stuffed Puffs will begin manufacturing operations in May 2020 and has committed to investing $31.5 million in capital funding toward the project.

“Food processing is one of Pennsylvania’s most robust and vibrant industries, supporting thousands of jobs and generating more than $5 billion in sales annually,” says Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf. “It is only fitting that a new, innovative food company would make the commonwealth its new home, and we are proud to make the investment that will turn that plan into reality.”
Stuffed Puffs received a funding proposal from the Department of Community and Economic Development for a $670,000 Pennsylvania First grant, $268,000 in Job Creation Tax Credits, and $140,400 in grants for workforce training and development.

“Stuffed Puffs is the easy new way to make a good old-fashioned American favorite S’mores, even better and it’s delicious also to eat right out of the bag,” says Richard Thompson, managing partner at Factory LLC the parent company of Stuffed Puffs. “At Factory LLC we seek innovation and we know Stuffed Puffs is a big winner and the new plant will support our continued growth, because we can’t make it fast enough.”

Stuffed Puffs initially launched its product exclusively at Walmart stores and will be expanding to other retailers in 2020.
