EAM-Mosca Opens $20.6 Million Manufacturing Expansion in Luzerne County

Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED) Secretary Rick Siger joined local business leaders to open EAM-Mosca Corp.’s $20.6 million expansion to its manufacturing operation in Luzerne County. As part of the project, the company renovated its existing facility and purchased new machinery and equipment for its Hazle Township campus, expanding its operations footprint in the Commonwealth from 165,000 square feet to 283,000 square feet, creating over 50 new good-paying jobs.

“EAM-Mosca’s expansion in Luzerne County creates and sustains good-paying jobs that help Pennsylvania compete and drive innovation on a global scale. We are competing aggressively for projects like this one and EAM-Mosca’s decision to continue growing in the Commonwealth sends a very strong message that Pennsylvania is open for business,” said Secretary Rick Siger.

EAM-Mosca manufactures and distributes automatic strapping systems and customized, high-performance end-of-line packaging solutions. The company has been in operation since 1982 and has installed more than 25,000 systems at customer locations throughout the Americas. In total, EAM-Mosca employs more than 320 team members at its operations in the US, Canada, Mexico, and Brazil.

“This is not an isolated case,” Christian Wiethuechter, President & CEO at EAM-Mosca Corp. said of the expansion. “If we look at the last five years, we’ve invested more than $50 million here in Pennsylvania actually to grow ourselves, to serve the market. But this is now a $20 million strategic initiative that we’ve embarked on.”
