UPS to expand operations, hire 1,700 workers
HARRISBURG (AP) — Package deliver company United Parcel Service has committed to spending $1.4 billion to expand its operations in Pennsylvania, including in Northumberland County, and hire more than 1,700 new, full-time employees, Gov. Tom Wolf’s administration said Wednesday.
Wolf’s administration said it offered UPS $2.7 million in tax credits and more than $6 million in taxpayer-funded grants as part of the projects.
The company will expand its operations in Philadelphia and Cumberland and Dauphin counties, spending the money on building renovations, equipment and infrastructure improvements at each of the locations, UPS said in a joint statement with Wolf’s office.
