All one man needed to create new jobs in Lubbock was 11 million dollars, and a machine to make egg trays.
Tom Hurley and Lubbock Economic Development Alliance announced Monday afternoon that his company would expand. Hurley is President and CEO of Hurley Packaging. Hurley's company will create 50 new jobs for the Hub City.
"To buy this machine, we had to buy it in a week," said Hurley. "We had been working on it for years. But a situation arose where they had two orders coming in from Europe on the same machine. So, we had to put together a loan package very quick."
Hurley will expand at his current location in the 2900 block of Municipal Drive.
