Tucker Rocky/Biker's Choice To Expand Its Lackawanna County, Pennsylvania, Manufacturing Plant
The company will relocate from Jessup Borough to a 282,000-square-foot site in Olyphant Borough. The company plans on investing more than $4 million at the new site and has committed to add 28 new jobs while retaining 37 more positions over the next three years.
“We're extremely excited about our new Olyphant distribution center. Not only will the project contribute to job growth within Pennsylvania, but, when the new facility center opens, it will be the largest in our network, providing powersports dealers in the Northeast with double the number of brands previously available in their one-day shipping zone” said Dan Courtney, President of Tucker Rocky/Biker's Choice.
The company received a funding proposal from Pennsylvania Department of Community & Economic Development including $84,000 in Job Creation Tax Credits and a $12,600 grant for Guaranteed Free Training that will be used to train the expanding workforce. The project was coordinated by the Governor’s Action Team in collaboration with the Greater Scranton Chamber of Commerce.
“We continue to reinforce our commitment to building a stronger Pennsylvania through supporting businesses that are ready to grow,” Department of Community and Economic Development Secretary C. Alan Walker. “Today, we celebrate another economic success in northeast Pennsylvania and we are proud to partner with Tucker Rocky/Biker's Choice to bring new jobs to Lackawanna County.”
“We are very pleased that the success realized by Tucker Rocky/Biker’s Choice has led to further growth of this respected business,” said Bob Durkin, President, Greater Scranton Chamber of Commerce. “Moving to a larger facility within Lackawanna County will accommodate their plans to create more jobs and allow them to continue to positively impact our local economy.”
