ERIE, Pa. -- Sterling Technologies Inc., will expand operations as the company will add 66 new full-time jobs.
Gov. Tom Wolf announced on Friday that the Lake City business, at 10047 Keystone Dr., will expand operations to meet record growth.
Sterling Technologies, a designer and manufacturer of rotationally molded plastic products has committed to invest more than $2 million into the project.
“Sterling Technologies is a great example of a homegrown Pennsylvania company that has experienced significant growth and success,” Wolf said. “It’s a pleasure to announce that this company has decided to maintain its roots within the commonwealth through this expansion, and that it will continue contributing to Pennsylvania’s well-being by expanding its workforce and offering employees stable jobs.”
Sterling received a funding proposal from the Department of Community and Economic Development that includes a $150,000 Pennsylvania First program grant, $132,000 in Job Creation Tax Credits to be distributed upon creation of the new jobs, and $46,700 in WEDnetPA funding for employee training.
“Working with the Governor’s Action Team was a seamless experience from the beginning. We were considering moving production, warehousing, and ultimately many jobs to another region, but in discussing our objectives and our goals with the GAT, we soon found that staying in Erie County was a great alternative to moving,” Greg Cronkhite, CEO of Sterling Technologies, said. “They provided guidance and opportunity for us to continue to grow our business in Pennsylvania. I would highly recommend companies considering relocation to talk to the GAT prior to final decisions.”
Sterling will also create 66 new, full-time jobs over the next three years while retaining 161 existing positions.
