SUPERVALU Expands Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, Distribution Hub

03/27/2018
SUPERVALU Inc., the largest public company grocery wholesaler in the United States, will locate a new facility in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. The company plans to create at least 350 new jobs in Dauphin County.

“Harrisburg is a terrific geographic center for serving our wholesale customers in the Northeast,” said Mark Gross, President & CEO of SUPERVALU. “We are very appreciative of the support and financial commitments from the Governor’s Action Team in helping us bring our business and jobs to the area. SUPERVALU is committed to growth and we are thrilled to be a part of the Harrisburg community and the great state of Pennsylvania.”

To better serve its customers in the northeast United States, SUPERVALU purchased and renovated a 750,000-square-foot warehouse distribution facility earlier this year. The company has committed to creating approximately 350 jobs in the area over the next three years and will invest approximately $69 million of its own in the project.

SUPERVALU received a funding proposal from the Department of Community and Economic Development that includes a $740,000 Pennsylvania First grant and $166,500 in WEDnetPA funding for employee training. The project was coordinated by Governor’s Action Team.

“Any time a large employer like SUPERVALU chooses to expand in Pennsylvania, not only is it fantastic news for our workers, but it’s more evidence that Pennsylvania has the workforce and business climate that makes companies want to grow here,” Governor Tom Wolf said. “My administration is looking forward to building on our efforts to support our business climate in the years ahead so companies like SUPERVALU can continue to thrive. I applaud SUPERVALU for choosing to expand in the commonwealth.”
