HARRISBURG - An international maker of hydraulic cylinders plans to open a plant in central Pennsylvania by the end of the year, Gov. Corbett said Tuesday in Brazil, where he is on a Latin American trade mission.
The planned Wipro Infrastructure Engineering plant in Chambersburg will create 74 local jobs and generate $10 million in capital investment over a decade, Corbett and officials involved in the project said from São Paulo on a conference call with reporters.
India-based Wipro is a major supplier of Volvo Construction Equipment, which officials said has a strong presence in Brazil and whose only North American production facility is in Shippensburg. Wipro has 13 facilities worldwide.
