LOOK Trailers Expands Manufacturing Facility In Luzerne County, Pennsylvania
The company will invest at least $2.3 million at the new site, where it will manufacture enclosed cargo trailers, and will create at least 65 new, full-time jobs over the next three years.
“Today’s celebration is a reminder of why LOOK Trailers chose Pennsylvania as the best place to create jobs and invest in the local economy,” said Matt Arnold, President of LOOK Trailers. “The support and collaboration of Governor Wolf and the many state and local officials that have welcomed us to the community has reaffirmed our commitment to making Luzerne County our home for many years to come.”
“Manufacturing work, like that being done here at LOOK Trailers, is critical to our economy,” Governor Tom Wolf said. “It is what Pennsylvania was built on, and that is why I am committed to continuing to work with the private sector to support robust business growth. That is also why I also recently established a tax credit for manufacturers who create jobs right here in Pennsylvania.”
As an incentive, the company received a funding proposal from the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development that includes $130,000 in Job Creation Tax Credits to be distributed upon creation of the new jobs and $15,750 in WEDnetPA funding for employee training.
