Humboldt Industrial Park is located near Hazleton, Pennsylvania, just 1.2 miles from Exit 143 of I-81 and 9.2 miles from the I-81/I-80 intersection. Downtown Hazleton and Hazleton’s major suburban shopping areas are both just five minutes away.
The park is within a 300 mile radius of 68.3 million people. Grant programs exist to help park tenants recruit and train their employees. The region’s traditionally high unemployment rates have helped employers find an ample number of qualified job applicants.
HUMBOLDT EXCELS AS E-COMMERCE FULFILLMENT LOCATION
With the evolution of online retailing and the push for ever-shorter delivery windows, e-commerce companies have sought out areas where they can establish strategically located and cost-efficient fulfillment operations. Humboldt’s combination of immediate interstate access, close proximity to the East Coast’s consumption zones, availability of FedEx and UPS service, new speculative industrial development, affordable operating costs, and a great workforce backed by an exceptional higher education network, continues to attract distribution operations to the park.
“The three main draws of this area were the location between Interstates 81 and 80, which works very well for us; the Keystone Opportunity Zone program; and the workforce in the Hazleton area, which is very good. Hiring people was not an issue at all. We received hundreds of applications for the positions we had available and have maintained most of the people we initially hired.”Steve BoucherGeneral Manager, E.S. Kluft, Hazleton
“The Hershey Company is very pleased to have such a great operating facility in Hazleton. Our employees are our greatest asset, and we are fortunate to have great people working at the Hazleton plant... many with more than 20 years of service.”Gene TannlerPlant Manager, The Hershey Company, Hazleton
“We went out and looked in this wonderful community and found lots of great leaders, great leaders who are going to take us to the next level. But the most important thing that happened was we found all of you, the wonderful, highly committed, highly dedicated, passionate people of Hazleton that we now call AutoZoners. Of all of the distribution centers that I have ever seen open, I have never seen one open as seamlessly as this one.”Bill RhodesChairman, President & CEO AutoZone, Hazleton
