Global Data Consultants Establishes Headquarters In Chamersburg, Pennsylvania
GDC received a funding proposal from the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development, including a $300,000 Pennsylvania First Program grant that facilitates investment and job creation, $300,000 in Job Creation Tax Credits and $67,500 grant for Guaranteed Free Training that will be used to train the expanding workforce. In addition, the company also was approved to receive an $870,000 loan from the Pennsylvania Industrial Development Authority.
“We are very excited about the partnership with the Department of Community and Economic Development. The additional funding allows us to maintain our corporate presence in Franklin County and bring highly desirable and diversified employment options to the region,” said Gregory Courtney, GDC’s Principal/CEO. “By locating our company headquarters and operation centers in South Central Pennsylvania, we are able to leverage our proximity to population centers and transportation hubs. This centralized location keeps our fixed costs manageable which in turn provides our customers with cost-competitive IT services. We are very thankful for the success we have cultivated over the last 20 years and look forward to building a stronger Pennsylvania as our company continues to grow in the decades to follow.”
The project was coordinated by the Governor’s Action Team in collaboration with Franklin County Area Development Corporation. “We are building a stronger Pennsylvania where businesses are growing and creating jobs,” Governor Tom Corbett said. “We are thrilled to partner with Global Data Consultants to bring new jobs and save existing jobs in the region.”
