Governor Wolf Announces Expansion of Eldorado Stone, LLC in Franklin County

first_img SHARE Email Facebook Twitter Economy,  Jobs That Pay,  Press Release Harrisburg, PA – Governor Tom Wolf announced today that Eldorado Stone, LLC, a Headwaters Company that manufactures architectural stone veneer, will consolidate its Greencastle-based manufacturing facility and Hagerstown, Maryland-based distribution facility into a new dual-purpose site in Franklin County. The move will create 57 new jobs over the next three years.“Eldorado Stone’s decision to consolidate a Maryland facility with a Pennsylvania facility, creating one new facility and new jobs in Pennsylvania is great news and is illustrative of the commonwealth’s welcoming environment for businesses,” said Governor Wolf. “I am proud that Eldorado Stone saw the benefits that Pennsylvania provides and has chosen to increase capacity, expand jobs, and further grow its markets from a site within the commonwealth.”In an effort to streamline costs and improve efficiency, Eldorado Stone will lease a 432,000-square-foot, build-to-suit manufacturing and distribution facility on 25.4 acres in the Antrim Commons Business Park, Antrim Township. The company plans to invest $6,880,000 in the project, including the leasehold and upgrades to equipment and processes. Eldorado Stone has committed to the creation of 57 new, full-time jobs over the next three years, and to the retention of 243 existing employees.“We at Eldorado Stone are grateful to the community and state for such an opportunity. By consolidating our operation, we will provide improved service to our customers. The move will allow us not only to service our customers better by improving our capacity, but will also provide an improved working environment for our colleagues. The flow of our manufacturing and warehousing operations will vastly improve in the areas of safety, ergonomics, and flow. These improvements will enable us to increase our capacity and shorten lead times for our customer,” said Eldorado Stone Plant Manager Frank Guthrie. “By staying in Franklin County, we are able to retain our skilled workforce and provide a superior product for our customers, so this opportunity is a win-win for all parties.”Eldorado Stone received a funding proposal from the Department of Community and Economic Development that includes a $250,000 Pennsylvania First Program grant and $114,000 in Job Creation Tax Credits to be distributed upon creation of the new jobs. The company has also been encouraged to apply for a $400,000 in low-interest loans from the Pennsylvania Industrial Development Authority.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, in collaboration with the Franklin County Area Development Corporation (FCADC) and the Greencastle-Antrim Chamber of Commerce.“The decision of Eldorado Stone, LLC to consolidate and expand its Franklin County presence is significant for several very important reasons. It ensures the retention of 243 employees while conservatively projecting the creation of 57 new, family-sustaining jobs. The construction of a 432,000-square-foot building in the Antrim Commons Business Park stands to be a catalyst for the continued development of what is arguably one of the premier business locations on the I-81 corridor,” said FCADC president Mike Ross. “Moreover, the company’s decision to maintain operations in Franklin County is reflective of Pennsylvania’s competitive business climate.”“To say the Greencastle-Antrim Chamber of Commerce is delighted that Eldorado Stone is not only staying in Greencastle, but also expanding its operations might qualify for the understatement of the year,” said Georgina Cranston, Greencastle-Antrim Chamber of Commerce executive director. “Frank Guthrie and his team at Eldorado Stone are exactly the kind of company the Greencastle-Antrim community covets: a leader in its field, committed to the community, and here for the long term. It’s great that the state of Pennsylvania and all the parties involved worked together to make this happen, and the Chamber looks forward to working with Eldorado Stone every step of the way.”Established in 1969, Eldorado Stone, LLC is a leading manufacturer of architectural stone veneer with a reputation for high quality products and outstanding customer service. Over the past 45 years, the company has expanded its product line to include brick veneer, fireplace surrounds, and outdoor living solutions. Eldorado Stone currently operates manufacturing facilities in several states with regional distribution centers across the country.For more information on Eldorado Stone, visit www.eldoradostone.com.For more information about the Governor’s Action Team or DCED, visit dced.pa.gov.Like Governor Tom Wolf on Facebook: Facebook.com/GovernorWolf Governor Wolf Announces Expansion of Eldorado Stone, LLC in Franklin Countycenter_img September 29, 2016last_img read more

What the Sex-Change Industry Doesn’t Tell You

first_imgCharisma News 10 April 2013Nancy Verhelst, a 44-year-old woman disappointed by her female-to-male surgery, decided to die by euthanasia.The story from Belgium was absolutely tragic. A 44-year-old woman disappointed by her female-to-male surgery decided to die by euthanasia, feeling that the surgery had left her a monster. But the story behind the story is even more tragic.Of course, if we simply believed the glowing reports in the media, you would think that everyone who has sex-change surgery is perfectly happy with the results. In keeping with that mentality, there’s a new term we are supposed to use—namely, gender-realignment surgery. This replaces the previous new term, sex-reassignment surgery, which replaced the more graphic term, sex-change surgery.And make no mistake about it: This is a radical surgery involving removing and changing perfectly healthy organs and body parts simply because the person is convinced in his or her mind that the parts shouldn’t be there.In the case of Belgian Nathan Verhelst, born Nancy Verhelst, she was allowed to die by lethal injection on the grounds of “unbearable psychological suffering.” (It should be noted that one in 50 deaths in Belgium today is the result of euthanasia, but that’s yet another tragic story.)As reported in Belgian news, Verhelst said after the surgery, “I was ready to celebrate my new birth. But when I looked in the mirror, I was disgusted with myself.“My new breasts did not match my expectations and my new penis had symptoms of rejection. I do not want to be … a monster.”All that is sad enough to read, but the story behind the story is worse still, pointing to the deeper issues involved in Verhelst’s life. Her mother rejected her from birth, having this to say after she received news of her daughter’s death: “When I first saw ‘Nancy,’ my dream was shattered. She was so ugly. I had a ghost birth. Her death does not bother me.”Have you read anything more cruel from a child’s own mother?It’s for reasons like these that the John Hopkins University hospital, under the leadership of the famed psychiatrist Dr. Paul McHugh, discontinued sex-change surgery years ago.http://www.charismanews.com/opinion/in-the-line-of-fire/41250-what-the-sex-change-industry-doesn-t-tell-youlast_img read more
