Procter Gamble is the midst of building one of the largest warehouses in Pennsylvania right in Shippensburg. Below is a picture of the huge warehouse.
The facility is expected to be open by early fall 2014. The distribution center is expected to employ over 960 employees, providing another shot int he arm to the Shippensburg and Chambersburg areas. Given the healthy employment rates in Franklin and Cumberland County, the facility will likely draw new people into the area.
The tremendous project is one of a few expected to develop on the Olde Scotland Road corridor over the next few years. Southampton Franklin, the township that is home to the new Procter & Gamble warehouse, is the fastest growing township in Franklin County and grew at a rate of 4.1% from 2010-2013. Given Proctor & Gamble and other development that will be occurring in the area, that is likely not going to change.
As areas grow, Mooney & Associates grows as well. Over the past four years, Mooney & Associates have added full time offices in Chambersburg (80 North Second Street), Carlisle (2 South Hanover Street) and a un-staffed office in Shippensburg (34 West King Street). Our Shippensburg office has evening hours every Tuesday evening from 5:00PM to 7:00PM.
