Two Franklin County firms plan to expand

May 08, 2009

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. -- The Chambersburg Area Development Corp. said Friday that more jobs are scheduled to come to the region as early as this summer.

CADC President Jeffrey Embly said Franklin Metal Services and Science Applications International Corp. (SAIC) both plan to expand business in Chambersburg in 2009.

Franklin Metal Services proposed to build a 4,000-square-foot facility in Progress Park this summer, Embly said.

The company, which specializes in the repair and reconditioning of nondestructive testing equipment, currently leases space in Chambersburg.

SAIC has signed a five-year lease in the Chambers-5 Business Park on Sheffler Drive, Embly said.

The company will open a Department of Defense Logistics fulfillment operation later this month and has hired seven new employees, he said.

The Chambers-5 location is the second in Franklin County for SAIC, which operates a Hazmat facility at Letterkenny Army Depot.

"We are pleased to see this expansion in Chambersburg," Embly said in a press release.


The new facilities are expected to bring more jobs to the area.
