Governor Wolf Announces Longtime PA Aviation Engineer and Manufacturer to Open New Facility in Mercer County, Redeveloping Brownfield Site and Bringing 57 New Jobs to Region

Harrisburg, PA (STL.News) Governor Tom Wolf announced that Hall Industries, a family-owned engineering and manufacturing company with multiple locations in the commonwealth, will streamline operations in western Pennsylvania into a new facility in Mercer County, creating 57 jobs.

Hall Industries will acquire the 468,000-square-foot Cooper Industrial Commons—a brownfield site in Grove City—and will renovate, purchase new machinery and equipment, and provide employee training.  While certain operations will be streamlined to the new facility, the company’s existing Pennsylvania facilities will remain open.  The company has committed to investing more than $11.8 million into the project, retaining 184 current positions and creating 57 new, full-time jobs over the next three years.

“Hall Industries has been rooted in western Pennsylvania—a region known for being an industrial powerhouse—for decades, and we are excited to support their continued growth in the commonwealth,” said Gov. Wolf.  “This expansion will not only redevelop and bring new life to an underutilized brownfield site, but also will bring new, good-paying jobs to communities that have recently experienced displacement within the manufacturing industry.”

Hall Industries offers an array of services and support for the aviation industry, including the engineering and design of components, mechanical improvements, service, and ground and maintenance support at airports.
