The winter weather has not slowed down the progress in the Lebanon Rails Business Park in North Lebanon Township, Lebanon County. The Lebanon Valley Economic Development Corporation (LVEDC) is watching the massive building unfold.
In the fall of 2016, a recruitment effort led by LVEDC President Susan Eberly was completed when she enticed the Lebanon Valley Cold Storage and Distribution Center to sign on the dotted line. The Company purchased 22+ acres. They didn't hesitate to start the project and a few days after settlement, they broke ground for their new facility.
The company is a storage and manufacturing facility for frozen bakery products. They anticipate creating 131 new, full time jobs. The investment into the community and the jobs that will be created will be a great asset for the county. The CareerLink of Lebanon County is assisting with employee recruitment efforts.
The project was partially funded utilizing the PIDA program and the LVEDC Revolving Loan program. The anticipated completion date for the project is mid-summer.
