York County manufacturer to create 30 new jobs

Posted: Updated:
YORK, Pa. (WHTM) -

Governor Tom Corbett said GEA Refrigeration is increasing production capacity at its York County facility and will add at least 30 new jobs.

Corbett said GEA is undertaking a facility-improvement project at its production and technology center in Manchester Township to accommodate for its growth as a result of increased demand from the oil and gas industry.

The site manufactures process refrigeration and gas compression systems used to refine and separate hydrocarbons and CO2 compression systems used for enhanced oil recovery.

GEA received a funding offer from the Department of Community and Economic Development, including a $65,000 Pennsylvania First Program grant and $60,000 in Job Creation Tax Credits.

The company will invest more than $1.83 million to purchase new equipment and complete infrastructure enhancements at its existing site.

The company is headquartered in York and currently employs more than 300 people in the United States.
