NEW YORK — After receiving $2.5 million in tax credits, Crepini will move its operating facility from New York to East Fishkill, N.Y.
The new 33,000-square-foot factory will allow the company to increase capacity by 500% and include new machinery and designated areas to create allergen-free products. The move is scheduled for this May and will create more than 108 jobs for the area.
The business received $2.5 million in Excelsior Jobs Program tax credits from Empire State Development, New York’s chief economic development agency, to support the relocation.
“We are excited to see Crepini move into new and improved space in the former IBM campus in East Fishkill,” said Howard Zemsky, president, chief executive officer and commissioner of Empire State Development.
Established in 2007, Crepini produces a range of egg white wrap items that can be used as an alternative to bread and tortillas. The company believes the new site will provide a boost in funding and set itself up for significant development.
“Through our family’s hard work and growth, we are now able to create more than 108 new jobs for other hard-working New Yorkers in the Hudson Valley and continue to work toward our goal of having Crepini products on every table in America,” said Paula Rimer, c.e.o. and co-founder of Crepini. “We are truly living the American dream.”
