Thermal solutions company Mobile Climate Control (MCC) is consolidating its U.S. operations to a new headquarters in West Manchester Township, York County.
Gov. Tom Wolf announced on Friday that the manufacturer is set to create 117 new, full-time jobs over the next three years as it moves all of its operations to a new 220,000-square-foot facility at 400 South Salem Church Road.
The new location will merge MCC’s existing U.S. operations consisting of: a production facility in Goshen, Indiana; an engineering and prototyping facility in Syracuse, New York; and an aftermarket warehouse, customer service, engineering and testing facility in York.
The Wolf Administration competed with other states for the project, offering MCC a funding proposal for a $250,000 Pennsylvania First grant and a $150,000 workforce development grant through the Department of Community and Economic Development.
“The Governor’s Action Team is pleased to invest in projects like this one that support growing companies and help boost Pennsylvania’s workforce,” said Brent Vernon, director of the Governor’s Action Team.
The company plans to retain 48 existing jobs, create at least 117 new jobs and invest $3.18 million into the project over the next three years.
The facility is expected to be operational by April. York-based Kinsley Construction is the developer of the project.
The effort to bring the company’s entire operations to the region was pushed to the finish line with help from the York County Economic Alliance, which assisted MCC with the site search, and the Manufacturers’ Association, which will support the company’s talent and training strategy with the association’s Center of Excellence for Apprenticeship and Training.
“The opportunity to bring our entire U.S. operation under one roof brings us key business synergies and Pennsylvania’s reputation as a hard-working manufacturing culture will ensure that our bus HVAC-R business remains competitive for years to come,” said Stephen Preisler, vice president of U.S. operations for MCC. “We thank the Governor’s Action Team for the funding award, as it was pivotal in the decision to bring our business fully to Pennsylvania. The funding will be used, with the help of the York County Economic Alliance and the Manufacturers’ Association, to develop our new employee base. We are very excited to bring well over 100 new jobs into our local community.”
