Phoenix Contact planning expansion this year
Phoenix Contact USA, the Dauphin County-based electronic components manufacturer, this year is planning a facilities expansion.
The company is in early planning phases to build a facility somewhere in Central Pennsylvania, but it does not have final plans yet, spokeswoman Molly McGowan said.
Phoenix Contact needs more space to accommodate the growth it had in 2011, she said. The company added about 100 employees to its ranks driven by sales growth of its products to the rebounding manufacturing sector. The company makes connectors and other components for industrial machinery.
The Lower Swatara Township-based company is a subsidiary of Germany-based Phoenix Contact GmbH & Co.
