IMPACT Across PA | York County
Legacy, a leading designer and producer of collegiate and resort headwear, apparel, fashion accessories and home décor, recently funded the expansion its York County manufacturing facility with a $1.5 million Pennsylvania Industrial Development Authority (PIDA) and a $1.5 million Small Business Administration 504 loan. The expansion was realized through the acquisition of adjoining land and construction of a 28,600 square foot building addition. The project is projected to create 20 new positions to the existing workforce of 84. The PIDA loan was accessed through the York County Economic Development Corporation, an affiliated entity of the York County Economic Alliance. The SBA 504 loan was facilitated in partnership with EDC Finance Corporation.
Established in 1992, Legacy has become a nationally recognized brand. From the University of North Carolina Tar Heels, to county artist Blake Shelton - Legacy hats and apparel can be found throughout the country. Legacy shipped thousands of shirts and hats to the victims of Hurricane Harvey this past September.
"Legacy is a true local business success story," states Kenetha Hansen, Director, Economic Development and Financing with York County Economic Alliance. "The business has evolved into a thriving, nationally recognized manufacturer and significant York County employer. The Economic Alliance is thrilled to have facilitated financing tools to support Legacy's expansion."
