Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf confirmed Thursday that Great Dane will establish a truck trailer manufacturing facility at the former Fleetwood RV complex in Ralpho Township.

“I am thrilled to recognize 150 new manufacturing jobs coming to Northumberland County,” Wolf said in a news release. “Through Great Dane’s expansion, a long-vacant manufacturing facility will be put back into productive use.”

Great Dane will expand business operations at the former Fleetwood RV site in Ralpho Township, Northumberland County. The company plans to invest $11 million at the site, and also has committed to create at least 150 new jobs and retain 438 existing positions over the next three years.

The company received a funding proposal from the Department of Community and Economic Development, including a Pennsylvania First Program grant for $425,000 and a WEDnetPA grant for $67,500.

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 Northumberland County Office of Economic Development.
