From his trade mission in Brazil, Gov. Tom Corbett is announcing that an international manufacturer of hydraulic cylinders plans to open a facility in central Pennsylvania.
In a conference call with Pennsylvania reporters Tuesday, Corbett and other officials said the planned Wipro Infrastructure Engineering plant in Chambersburg will create 74 local jobs and generate $10 million in capital investment over 10 years.It’s slated to open by the end of this year.
India-based Wipro is a major supplier of Volvo Construction Equipment, whose only North American production facility is in Shippensburg.
Corbett is leading a group of about 50 people that includes his own aides and business people.
The 10-day trip also includes a stop in Chile. Corbett went to France and Germany last year.
