Shalestone group will build new industrial facilities in the I-70 Industrial Park in South Huntingdon, PA.
The Monroeville-based company plans to construct flex-type industrial facilities on about 28 acres in the park.
Upon completion, 200 jobs are expected to be generated at the site. The development will cater to clients in the industrial sector as well as in the oil and gas-related sector.
“More trucking, more warehousing, more supply materials and drilling equipment all mean more jobs for Westmoreland County,” Westmoreland County Commissioner Chuck Anderson said in a news release. “We want to create more good-news stories like the one here in the I-70 Industrial Park all over Westmoreland County.”
The parcel was purchased for $552,200 by the Wendell H. Stone Co., a diverse conglomerate of which Shalestone is a subsidiary.
“Westmoreland County continues to have its share of impact from natural gas exploration,” Jason Rigone, Westmoreland County Industrial Development Corp. executive director, said in a news release. “This park in particular has been a focal point of inquiries for companies in the industry who are looking for sites to start up operations.”
