Crayola moves distribution from Harrisburg to Bethlehem

    Bethlehem is getting some color. Some yellow for the sun, blue for the sky and everything else for the Majestic Bethlehem Center.

    The center — what used to be Bethlehem Steel — will soon be home to Crayola’s distribution facilities, the Business Journal reports.

    Construction will begin next month to move the center from Harrisburg, and is expected to be complete by next March. Crayola’s manufacturing headquarters is in Easton, Pa. More than 1,000 people are employed there and 60 to 80 others will have jobs in Bethlehem.
