SHIPPENSBURG, Pa. - Ingersoll-Rand Co. plans to add 10 full-time jobs over the next three years and update its plant with the help of a $100,000 state grant.
State Rep. Jeffrey Coy, D-Franklin, said Tuesday that the construction equipment manufacturer was awarded the Opportunity Grant through the state Department of Community and Economic Development.
Coy wrote a grant support letter for Ingersoll-Rand, which applied for the funds early this year.
"Ingersoll-Rand has been a good, steady employer in our community and, with assistance from the state, it will bring even more jobs to our community," Coy said in a prepared statement.
