Press release, personnel development

Governor Tom Wolf announced that Nations Photo Lab, a subsidiary of Gallery Blocks LLC (d / b / a Artsy Couture) – a leading full-service professional photo printing laboratory headquartered in Cockeysville, Maryland – is headquartered in Springettsbury Township, York, has relocated district. The move will create 125 new full-time positions in the Susquehanna Valley.

“In this digital age, memories can be captured with many different devices, but they can only be kept in print forever,” said Governor Wolf. “Pennsylvania is excited to welcome Artsy Couture to the Commonwealth and is proud to support them in creating jobs, capturing life moments and providing an important service to local photographers.”

As part of Artsy Couture’s move and expansion efforts, the company has purchased an existing 73,850 square foot building in Springettsbury Township. The move includes the purchase of the building, renovations, new equipment, furniture, and the cost of professional training. The company has committed to investing $ 5.6 million in the project.

“Our new, larger manufacturing space in York County allows us to bring our teams together to increase efficiency, encourage collaboration and support the future growth of our business,” said Harvis Kramer, President of Artsy Couture. “This website offers great flexibility for our future growth in the US.”

Nations Photo Lab received funding proposal from the Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED) for the project. The proposal includes a $ 50,000 grant to Pennsylvania First, $ 125,000 job creation tax credits to be distributed as the new jobs are created, and a workforce training grant from $ 52,800. The company was also encouraged by DCED to apply for a $ 2 million loan from the Pennsylvania Industrial Development Authority (PIDA).

The project was coordinated by the Governor’s Action Team, an experienced group of business development professionals reporting directly to the Governor who work with companies considering moving to Pennsylvania or expanding into Pennsylvania.

“On behalf of YCEA, I am delighted to welcome Artsy Couture to York County,” said Kevin Schreiber, President and CEO of the York County Economic Alliance. “Our team was pleased to assist with the site search process and coordinate efforts with the governor’s action team.”
