The local project is estimated to cost $4.6 million with up to $2 million coming from a Pennsylvania Industrial Development Authority loan. The Franklin County Industrial Development Authority meets Monday to consider another low-interest loan of up to $3.5 million for the project.
FCADC already has approvals to construct a building next door to the Atlas Copco machining shop at 13278 Lincoln Way West. Construction is to begin in mid-April with completion by Dec. 1, according to Ross. The company will rent the building from FCADC.
