Graham Packaging is planning to move its headquarters to Lancaster County, according to plans filed with West Hempfield Township.

Jodi Heffner, zoning officer for the township, said the company, currently based in Springettsbury Township, filed plans in January to move into a building owned and partially occupied by The Jay Group.

Demolition permits were issued for the project on Feb. 18 to turn the 3,200 square foot warehouse into office space, she said. The office will be at 700 Indian Springs Dr.

Graham Packaging representatives did not return multiple messages seeking comment.

David Bode, a managing partner at Rock Commercial Real Estate, said the 86,600 square feet of space in the building Graham's headquarters currently operates has been listed since October.

The building, at 2401 Pleasant Valley Road, is also occupied by WellSpan properties, Bode said.

Graham's lease on the space ends in April, and Bode said he believes the company is planning on moving in May.

At the end of February, Graham Packaging filed a WARN notification with the Maryland Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation indicating that it would be closing its Baltimore Plant.

The closure of the plant at 210 Kane St. will result in 79 layoffs, effective April 1, according to the notification.

Graham Packaging makes plastic containers for various industries and has two manufacturing plants and one warehouse in York County.
