Coordinated by the Governor’s Action Team, last month, Logistics Plus announced its plans to expand and create 44 new, family-sustaining jobs in Erie. Today, the governor toured the company’s facility and planned expansion site. The expanded facility will allow for the handling of all logistics for clients, from order intake to shipping and installation.

Logistics Plus has grown from a three-person operation in 1996, to a global organization, employing over 130 people in Erie alone. We are grateful to Governor Wolf and the commonwealth for acknowledging our efforts to attract and retain local graduates,” commented Gretchen Seth, Senior VP of International. “Our CEO Jim Berlin calls it the ‘brain gain’.
