CHAMBERSBURG, Pa.- Industrial development officials in Chambersburg sold off another chunk of land in the Chambers 5 Business Park, this time to a Nevada firm that will build and lease distribution and warehouse space in a project that could eventually mean 100 new jobs.
The buyer, Dermody Owen, LCC of Reno, Nev., is the largest private land development company in Nevada, said David G. Sciamanna, executive director of the Chambersburg Area Development Corp. The company is buying 23 acres, Sciamanna said.
Dermody Owen's first tenant will lease 240,000 square feet for a distribution center, Sciamanna said. The tenant, which has asked to remain anonymous for the time being, deals in consumer products, Sciamanna said. The company is expected to hire about 65 workers, most of whom will be local, he said.
