Morgan Advanced Materials and Technologies Expands in Coudersport and St. Marys, Pennsylvania
According to state officials, due to growing demand for the ballistic armor systems supported by Morgan’s material technology and used by military and law enforcement, the company requires new equipment and furnace technology in order to increase production to meet demand.
Morgan has pledged to invest at least $1.6 million into the expansion project, which will create 41 new jobs and retain the 441 existing jobs at Morgan’s facilities in Elk and Potter counties.
“At Morgan Advanced Materials we use advanced materials to help make more efficient use of the world’s resources, and to improve the quality of life,” said Joseph Boylan, Strategic Marketing Director at Morgan. “We are delighted that we have received this support from the Governor’s Action Team to increase capacity at our production facility. This investment will help generate further employment in our community and leverages our leading materials technology, ultimately helping us to protect our soldiers’ lives.”
Morgan received a funding proposal from the Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED) for a $100,000 Pennsylvania First grant and $82,000 in Job Creation Tax Credits to be distributed upon the creation of new jobs. The project was coordinated by the Governor’s Action Team.
“This expansion will enable Morgan to grow and create jobs right here in the commonwealth, which is great news for workers,” Governor Tom Wolf said. “We’re also proud to support a project that will enable the materials used for protecting our military and law enforcement to be made in Pennsylvania.”
