NEW YORK Olympic Steel
Inc. plans to spend $11 million to expand its plate-processing
operations in Chambersburg, Pa.
The company will use the funds
to purchase new equipment and provide training for about 90 new
employees over the next three years, according to a statement
from Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett.
Olympic was considering
expansions at a number of its national locations and selected
the Chambersburg site to better serve its East Coast customers,
the statement said.
The Bedford Heights, Ohio-based
service center will receive $400,500 from the states
Department of Community and Economic Development for the
facilities include welding, painting, blasting oxyfuel and
plasma-burning operations, as well as a machine shop, according
to the companys website.
