R.G. Coating LLC, a hot dip galvanizing company, announced plans to build a new galvanizing facility in Lawrence County.
The company will construct a new, 50,000-sq.-ft. facility at the site in Pulaski Township. Featuring state-of-the-art galvanizing equipment, the plant will enable the company to bring the galvanization process in-house so its products can be delivered to market quickly and efficiently.
R.G. Coating plans to invest at least $13.6 million into the project, which is expected to create 65 jobs and retain 25 jobs over the next three years.
The company received a funding proposal from the Department of Community and Economic Development for a $200,000 Pennsylvania First grant, $130,000 in job creation tax credits to be distributed upon the creation of new jobs, and a $29,250 workforce development grant to help the company train its workers.
