A Springfield company that builds stainless steel tanks is adding up to 88 new local jobs. As KSMU’s Jennifer Davidson reports, the jobs will pay above the county wage.
Stainless Technology is expanding because of a growth in sales of its metal tanks and vessels. The goods are used to make biopharmaceuticals, which are medical drugs made by using biotechnology.
According to a release from the Springfield Area Chamber of Commerce, Stainless Technology plans to add up to 75 thousand (75,000) square feet to its facility in Springfield’s Partnership Industrial Center. The expansion will include a multi-million dollar capital investment into the Springfield region.
In the release, the CEO of the Pennsylvania parent company ABEC said that the Springfield community has been “very responsive” to the needs of its growing company. The Chamber of Commerce is helping Stainless Technology attract skilled workers to fill the new positions.
