Governor: 74 Jobs Coming to Pennsylvania from Brazil

As Governor Tom Corbett continues his trade mission to Brazil and Chile this week, he has announced the expectation of 74 new jobs to be located in Chambersburg, Franklin County.

The governor used a roundtable meeting to disclose the plan by Brazilian company Wipro Infrastructure Engineering to open its first U.S.-based manufacturing facility. The company produces hydraulic cylinders, with one of its major customers being Volvo, a company which also recently relocated its North American headquarters to south-central PA.

Governor Corbett’s three-city, two-nation trip continues through April 16th. It is privately funded through the Team Pennsylvania Foundation. The governor is still on the first leg of his tour, in Sao Paulo. He’ll also visit Rio de Janeiro and Santiago, Chile.
