04/08/2015
Universal Pasteurization Company, a provider of high pressure processing and cold storage services to domestic food manufacturers, is investing more than $10.8 million to establish a 170,000 square foot facility at 8 Lee Boulevard in East Whiteland Township, Pennsylvania. The move is expected to create more than 50 new jobs in Chester County.

As an incentive, the company received a funding proposal from the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development, including $102,000 in Job Creation Tax Credits and a $22,950 WEDnetPA grant to train its workforce.

"As the largest contract manufacturer of HPP services and a provider of cold storage, we are excited about the opportunity to operate and continue to grow our business in Pennsylvania," said Melanie Galloway, CEO, Universal Pasteurization.

"The Chester County Economic Development Council has made this a very smooth journey for us and we are very grateful. We look forward to providing a solution for our customers in the northeast, as well as providing jobs and opportunities for the people in Chester County,” she added.

"I am pleased that Universal Pasteurization has chosen Pennsylvania as the place to grow its business," said Governor Tom Wolf. "The significant reforms proposed in my budget will continue to move Pennsylvania forward by creating a pro-business climate that supports our manufacturing sector, creating jobs that pay."

The project was coordinated by the Governor's Action Team in collaboration with Chester County Economic Development Council. "We are delighted to have helped locate Universal Pasteurization in Chester County and to have connected UPC to the resources offered through our Ideas x Innovation Network (i2n)," said Michael Grigalonis, Chief Operating Officer, CCEDC. "The Chester County Economic Development Council looks forward to building our relationship with UPC, as it grows its business here, adding to the fabric of what makes Chester County such a wonderful place to live, work and raise a family."
