Wolf announces new manufacturing plant in York County

York County will be the site for the first manufacturing operation for building materials retailer Carter Lumber in Pennsylvania, Gov. Tom Wolf announced Wednesday.

The state will support the facility in Penn Township with more than $150,000 in grants and tax credits, including $70,000 from the Pennsylvania First grant, a $15,750 workforce development grant and $70,000 in job creation tax credits, Wolf said in a release.

In order to meet growing market demands, Carter Lumber purchased and renovated a 64,300-square-foot warehouse in Penn Township Industrial Park.

The company is investing $6 million in the project and expects to create 35 new, full-time jobs at the facility and retain 177 existing jobs across the commonwealth over the next three years.

"As a former business owner in York County’s hardwoods industry, I know Carter Lumber will be right at home in this area and Pennsylvania," Wolf said in the release.
