Pennsylvania Governor Tom Corbett has announced that Solar Innovations Inc. will move forward with an expansion that is projected to support the creation of 18 jobs and retention of 116 positions in Schuylkill County, Pa.
Solar Innovations, a manufacturer and supplier for custom commercial and residential glazed products including but not limited to doors, windows, skylights and greenhouses, will acquire a 62,000-square-foot office building in Pine Grove Township. The company will invest more than $1.1 million in the project.
The Pennsylvania Industrial Development Authority will provide a $520,000, 15-year low-interest loan at 1.5% to the Schuylkill Economic Development Corp. on behalf of Solar Innovations.
‘Keeping my administration's commitment to moving our economy forward continues to send a strong message that Pennsylvania is serious about job creation,’ Corbett says. ‘As a result of this commitment, companies like Solar Innovations are reinvesting and creating jobs in Pennsylvania.’
