Claysburg, PA - Central States Manufacturing, supplier of metal roof and wall panels, has broken ground on a 50,000 sq. ft. manufacturing and warehouse facility in Martin J. Marasco Business Park near Claysburg, PA. This project represents the company's ninth manufacturing facility.

Central States has committed to the creation of 50 new, full-time jobs over the next three years, and investing at least $5.8 million on the project.

“We are very excited to partner with Blair County to continue our growth of metal building components into the state of Pennsylvania,” Tim Ruger, vice president of operations, Central States said.

At Central States, we believe that each location should connect and contribute to the surrounding community and we look forward to helping serve in Blair County.”

“We consider our collaborative efforts for economic development here at the Altoona-Blair County Development Corporation an item of great pride and we are excited to be part of this project with Governor Wolf, the Governor’s Action Team, DCED, our federal, state and local elected officials, agencies and private sector partners,” said Martin Marasco, president and CEO of ABCD Corp. “We are grateful to Central States Manufacturing for deciding on Blair County for their manufacturing operations, investment and creation of new jobs here in the heart of the I-99 Innovation Corridor Region.”
