Benton Foundry project receives state funding

AFS Corporate Member Benton Foundry (Benton, Pennsylvania) was awarded a $3 million grant through the Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program (RACP), according to Senator John R. Gordner (R-27) and Representative David Millard (R-109). 

The company’s footprint will expand by 70,000 sq.ft. and new robotic equipment will be installed. This will result in at least 50 new jobs and a rise in daily production to 200 tons, an increase of 50 tons per day. 

“I would like to congratulate Benton Foundry ... I am pleased to see how the utilization of new technologies can bring substantial economic development to the people of Columbia County and beyond,” said Senator Gordner. 

“I look forward to seeing so many life-sustaining jobs coming to our area,” said Rep. Millard.
