Governor Corbett Makes Jobs Announcement In Brazil; 74 Jobs Coming To Franklin County

SAO PAULO, April 9, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Governor Tom Corbett today announced during a roundtable discussion in Brazil that Wipro Infrastructure Engineering (Wipro), a hydraulic cylinder manufacturer, will establish a new U.S.-based manufacturing facility in Franklin County and create 74 new jobs. 

"I am leading this delegation to strengthen Pennsylvania's position in the global economy and to create new economic and job creation opportunities," Corbett said. "Today's announcement will result in Wipro bringing its first manufacturing facility to Pennsylvania, as well as 74 new jobs." 

Wipro is a leading independent solution provider in the area of Hydraulic Cylinders for the mobile equipment market globally and is a supplier of leading global equipment manufacturers in Asia, Europe and South America. The company will locate its first U.S.-based manufacturing facility in Chambersburg, resulting in the creation of 74 new jobs.

Governor Corbett announced the project at a roundtable discussion earlier today in Sao Paulo, Brazil with Volvo Construction Equipment (CE). Wipro, a major supplier of Volvo CE, located in Franklin County to better serve its existing customers and to secure new customers. Recently, Volvo CE has relocated its North American headquarters to the Shippensburg, Pa. campus, which now serves as the company's only production facility in North America.

"My goal for this Jobs 1st Mission is to develop new business growth for the state and to strengthen our international trade relationships with Brazil and Chile," Corbett said. "I will continue working throughout this mission to connect our businesses with new markets and meet directly with other potential companies that are looking at investing and creating jobs in Pennsylvania."

Corbett's announcement continued the Governor's Jobs 1st Mission to Brazil and Chile. The mission is focused on growing the Pennsylvania economy and creating jobs through export promotion, investment attraction, building relationships to increase port traffic, international student recruitment and promoting Pennsylvania as a world class destination for tourism.

The three-city, two-country mission, privately funded by Team Pennsylvania Foundation, is scheduled for April 6-16 and will include stops in the Brazilian cities of Sao Paolo and Rio de Janeiro, along with Santiago, Chile.
