Furnace Builder Gasbarre Investing/Expanding
“Governor Tom Wolf announced that Gasbarre Products, Inc., an industrial furnace manufacturer, will create and retain 172 total jobs in multiple Pennsylvania counties as part of a planned expansion at the company’s facility in St. Marys, Elk County.
The company is investing $5.8 million into the project and has leased a 150,000-square-foot facility at 835 Washington Street in St. Marys, which will triple the size of their current State Street location. Gasbarre also plans to relocate operations from their Plymouth, Michigan, location to this new facility.
“With four locations here, Gasbarre has a nearly 50-year presence in Pennsylvania,” said Sec. Weaver. “We’re very pleased to support the company’s newest expansion as they continue to grow and thrive in the commonwealth.” As part of its expansion project, the company committed to creating 16 new jobs at its St. Marys facility within three years. Gasbarre is also retaining 156 existing employees across four locations statewide: St. Marys, Elk County; Philipsburg, Centre County; and DuBois and Olanta in Clearfield County.
“Our investment in the new facility in St. Marys provides an opportunity for Gasbarre to continue to grow and flourish where we have manufactured for nearly 50 years,” said Gasbarre CEO Alex Gasbarre. “The work ethic and skills provided by past, current, and future Gasbarre team members provide a strong base for this move. We look forward to adding new team members in the coming months when the move process is completed. The people of Elk County and St. Marys will be key to our success.”
