CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - A Franklin County, Pa., manufacturer will be expanding next year with a new facility in the Chambers-5 Business Park, a process that could create 25 jobs over the next few years.
Olson and Olson Inc., 600 E. Paper Mill Road, Chambersburg, recently signed a sales agreement to purchase a five-acre parcel in the park, according to an announcement from the Chambersburg Area Development Corporation, which owns the industrial park.
The manufacturer of precision machined parts will begin construction on an 18,000-square-foot plant next spring with occupancy expected in late 1999. President Eric Olson said the new building will cost more than $1 million.
Within three years of the building's completion, Olson said the company expects the facility could double in size. In about eight years, the plant on Sheffler Drive in the park could expand to 60,000 square feet, he said.
