On Tuesday, Sivana Converting LLC CEO Soheil Shahrooz gave a tour to U.S. Rep. Fred Keller, R-12, and other local officials of the 350,000-square-foot space that once housed the former Sunbury Textile Mill facility, previously owned by GlenRaven Custom Fabrics LLC. The first phase of the project is expected to start with 50 jobs when production starts in June.
Sivana will be a bio-degradable company for to-go containers, cups, plates, utensils and corrugated boxes. The goal is to produce 100 percent hemp-based products, using about 70 farmers in Pennsylvania as the suppliers, said Shahrooz.
