150 jobs expected in Bowman expansion
By LAURA ERNDE
Washington County's largest trucking company recently inked a contract with the Hechinger Co. that could lead to 150 new jobs over five years, officials said Tuesday.
D.M. Bowman Inc. of Williamsport started construction Monday on a 360,000-square-foot warehouse at Newgate Industrial Park, said Chairman of the Board Don Bowman.
From the warehouse, Bowman will distribute products to 88 Hechinger stores in the mid-Atlantic region.
The deal will close a warehouse operation in Landover, Md., that the Largo, Md.-based Hechinger had been using, he said.
Bowman will hire 50 people to be shipping and receiving managers, dock labor supervisors, forklift operators, warehouse and dock laborers and truck drivers, he said.
