A Humboldt Industrial Park logistics company that operates from a 525,000-square-foot facility and ships hundreds of trailers of food products across the northeastern United States each week has been named one of the Top Green Providers for 2015 by Food Logistics magazine.
In 2009, Romark Logistics embarked on a mission to become a more energy-efficient operation and achieve the goals of reaching landfill-free status and eliminating its carbon footprint. Six years later, the third-party logistics company celebrated its sustainability efforts after receiving the recognition from the food logistics industry publication.
CAN DO, Inc., the economic development organization serving Greater Hazleton and beyond, announced updated interest rate options for Pennsylvania Industrial Development Authority (PIDA) products and loans for the 2016 second quarter.
PIDA provides funding up to 50 percent of project costs for eligible businesses that commit to creating and retaining full-time jobs. PIDA loan applications can only be packaged, underwritten and submitted by Certified Economic Development Organizations such as CAN DO, which is authorized to provide these services in the Greater Hazleton and Luzerne County areas.
The new rates are in effect for loan applications received through June 30, 2016.
Industries thrive in Greater Hazleton’s Humboldt Industrial Park because of the area’s competitive operating costs and strategic location near the crossroads of Interstates 80 and 81. Another added benefit is immediate access to the quality railroad system that runs directly through several sections of the 3,000-acre park.
When Reading Blue Mountain & Northern Railroad (RBMN) took over rail service in CAN DO’s Humboldt Industrial Park on January 1, companies in Greater Hazleton immediately saw the benefits they would receive from the rail carrier’s personalized service and quality access to rail transportation for their goods and services.
Located directly along the I-81 corridor in Northeast Pennsylvania and just minutes from I-80, Greater Hazleton offers an ideal location, just two hours to New York City and Philadelphia and within a day's drive of half the nation's population.
