Senator Michele Brooks is pleased to announce that Combined Systems Inc. in Greene Township, Mercer County, will receive $2 million in funding from the state Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program (RACP).
The result of this RACP money will be the retention of a business that is committed to expanding in Pennsylvania. Not only will the impacts of the proposed development be felt in the immediate area, but throughout the Commonwealth.
“When we are competing against other states, this is an important opportunity to retain and potentially grow much needed jobs in our area as well as become more competitive in the global economy,” said Senator Brooks. “Combined Systems employs 215 dedicated and hardworking employees locally and 237 statewide.”
“Combined Systems is grateful to the state of Pennsylvania for its support,” said Don Smith CEO of Combined Systems. “With this support, Combined Systems can continue to grow and expand our business in the great state of Pennsylvania.”
Representative Parke Wentling said, “This expansion will enable Combine Systems to penetrate new national and international markets and accommodate market growth.”
“The RACP is a very competitive program and I was happy to work with Penn-Northwest and Combined Systems to advocate on behalf of their application and our rural community,” said Senator Brooks.
The RACP is administered by the Office of the Budget for the acquisition and construction of regional economic, cultural, civic, recreational, and historical improvement projects.
