Gottheimer Celebrates New Fifth District Jobs, Investment at Pace Glass Groundbreaking in Andover Township
New Plant Will Be Largest Glass Recycling Facility in the World
Today, Congressman Josh Gottheimer (NJ-5) joined Andover Township Mayor Janis McGovern, Pace Glass CEO George Valiotis, and other members of the Pace Glass team to break ground on the company’s new facility in Andover Township, slated to open in early 2019.
“I am thrilled Pace Glass chose to continue investing in New Jersey workers and families by opening up its second facility in our state, creating 80 local jobs and as many as 60 jobs for truck drivers to collect glass and deliver materials to manufacturing sites across New Jersey and neighboring states. Today’s groundbreaking showcased the benefits the new facility will bring to our environment and our economy, and demonstrated the power of business and government working together on the same team,” said Congressman Josh Gottheimer (NJ-5). “For my part, I will keep fighting to lower taxes, cut red tape, invest in infrastructure, and fight for a better return on the tax dollars we already send to Washington. Later this week, the Governor will sign the New Jersey Tax Cut Plan I introduced in January, helping us take the next step toward bringing more businesses like Pace Glass to the Fifth District.”
