NICHOLS, N.Y. (AP) — A Pennsylvania-based maker of metal beverage and food packaging plans to build a $132 million manufacturing plant in New York's Southern Tier, bringing more than 160 jobs one of the state's most economically distressed regions.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced Sunday that Crown Holdings, Inc. will build its first new manufacturing facility in the United States in more than 20 years in the Tioga County town of Nichols, on the Pennsylvania border 25 miles west of Binghamton.

Philadelphia-based Crown Holdings produces food and drink cans and other metal packaging for health and beauty, household and industrial goods. The company employs about 23,000 people worldwide.

The company's new plant will be located at the Tioga County Industrial Park. It expects to create at least 164 jobs by 2018.
