Company that makes packaging will move 115 jobs from Mexico to Delaware. Grayling Industries, which was recently acquired by ILC Dover, plans to move a manufacturing site from Juarez, Mexico. It makes packaging used by the food, chemical and pharmaceutical industries under the brand name Guardian. Grayling’s newly constructed plant will be near Seaford, Del., the state Economic Development Office said. “We are excited to have the opportunity to bring jobs back to the United States and the State of Delaware,” William Wallach, CEO of ILC Dover, said. Production will start in April and the 115 positions should be filled by year’s end. As part of the move, ILC Dover could receive up to $552,000 in state grants.
