Gasbarre Products Inc is reported to be expanding its facility in St Marys, Pennsylvania, USA, with an investment of some $5.8 million. The company has leased a 14,000 m2 facility in St Marys, which will triple the size of its current location and create sixteen new jobs, while retaining a further 156 employees across four locations statewide. Gasbarre also plans to relocate operations from Plymouth, Michigan, to the expanded facility.
Gasbarre received a funding proposal from the Donor Committee for Enterprise Development (DCED) for a $64,000 Pennsylvania First grant. As part of its expansion project, the company has committed to creating new jobs at its St Marys facility within three years.
“Our investment in the new facility in St Marys provides an opportunity for Gasbarre to continue to grow and flourish where we have manufactured for nearly fifty years,” stated Alex Gasbarre, CEO. “The work ethic and skills provided by past, current, and future Gasbarre team members provide a strong base for this move. We look forward to adding new team members in the coming months when the move process is completed. The people of Elk County and St. Marys will be key to our success.”
