A Brazilian machinery manufacturer will establish its first U.S. facility in Franklin County in a move that will create 73 new jobs.
Governor Tom Corbett said Torcomp USA will construct a 16,400-square-foot manufacturing plant in Greene Township and plans to invest more than $9 million at the new site.
Torcomp has also committed to creating at least 73 new jobs over the next three years, Corbett said.
Corbett said the project is a direct result from his jobs mission to Brazil and Chile in April 2013.
The Pennsylvania Industrial Development Authority will provide a $640,000, 15-year, low-interest loan at 2.25 percent to Franklin County Area Development Corporation on behalf of Torcomp.
