The company will purchase and renovate a 180,000 square foot facility in Easton, doubling its manufacturing capacity, to continue selling its brands to major retailers. The company has pledged to invest $16.7 million into this competitive project.
A.P. Deauville received a funding proposal from the Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED) for a $250,000 Pennsylvania First grant to be distributed upon the creation of the new jobs and $50,000 in funding for job training.
The company has been encouraged to apply for a Pennsylvania Industrial Development Authority (PIDA) loan and may also be eligible for DCED’s Manufacturing Tax Credit program. The project was coordinated by the Governor’s Action Team, an experienced group of economic development professionals who report directly to the governor and work with businesses that are considering locating or expanding in Pennsylvania. ■
