SHADY GROVE, Pa. - Grove Worldwide is creating 120 new manufacturing jobs due to strong demand for mobile cranes and aerial work platforms.
Grove's employment levels have increased steadily over the past two years as markets for its mobile cranes and aerial work platforms have remained strong, a company official said Monday. The company is adding more people to keep up with market demand, which is being driven by a "strong North American economy," said William Foley, Grove's vice president of market support.
Current employment at the Shady Grove manufacturing center has increased by almost 10 percent in the past 14 months. Grove employs more than 2,500 in Franklin County, Pa.
