"This is a great thing for Muhlenberg," said Michael Malinowski, president of the Muhlenberg Township Board of Commissioners.
CarbonLITE, a recycling company out of Los Angeles, will open a brand new facility along Route 61 in Muhlenberg Township.
"It's going to make the property across from Bob Fisher just a beautiful site," Malinowski said.
CarbonLITE says the plan is to build a 270,000 square-foot plant from the ground up, a total investment of more than $80 million.
"Good paying jobs, secure jobs, you know construction jobs. I mean it's a huge facility that they're building, so we're extremely happy about the type of work and the type of economic development and tax base it'll grow for Muhlenberg," Malinowski said.
