This new project involves a $1.3 million investment and the creation of 10 new jobs in 18 months. The payroll for new regular jobs totals $230,600, company officials said.

“At the DDEC we’re very proud to see how Puerto Rican entrepreneurs give their all to move their businesses forward,” said DDEC Secretary Manuel Cidre, announcing that $110,000 in incentives will be awarded to the new company in Naranjito.
