United States Cold Storage expands operations
United States Cold Storage (USCS), a refrigerated warehouse and logistics company, will expand operations in Richland Township, Pennsylvania, and will create 60 new jobs at the site. The facility stores refrigerated foods that are distributed across the U.S.
USCS will be expanding its existing facility at 1050 Heller Road by 200,000 square feet. The company has committed to investing $41.5 million in the project, creating 60 new, full-time jobs within three years, and to retaining 613 existing statewide positions. Hiring of new employees will likely commence in August 2017.
USCS received a funding proposal from the Department of Community and Economic Development that includes a $120,000 Pennsylvania First grant, $21,600 in WEDnetPA funding for employee training, and $120,000 in Job Creation Tax Credits to be distributed upon creation of the new jobs.
The project was coordinated by Governor Tom Wolf’s Action Team, a group of economic development professionals who report directly to the governor and work with businesses that are considering locating or expanding in Pennsylvania, in collaboration with the Bucks County Economic Development Corporation.
