In it, they describe the benefits of relocating to Northeast PA, from their plant in the Allentown area.

“The Wyoming Valley had many amenities to lure the insulation manufacturer.

The company’s decision to relocate its Lehigh Valley operation was made following U.S. Green Fiber’s acquisition of Allentown-based Fiber America in September 2014.

“The company wanted to remain in the northeast,” he said. “The cost on a square-footage basis made more sense in Wilkes-Barre.”

Aguayo said some other deciding factors were the proximity to Interstate 81 and 476 junctions, availability of rail service, lower operational costs and availability to a skilled workforce.”

Also notable, the company has an eye towards environmental sustainability:

“The manufacturer produces cellulose, a type of “blown in insulation” frequently used by contractors to insulate homes and businesses, Ric Aguayo, plant manager with U.S. Green Fiber said.

The production of cellulose has a much smaller carbon footprint when compared to fiberglass insulation that requires furnaces consistently running to maintain a target temperature.”
