The company has committed to investing $9,193,000 in the project, which will include the purchase of a 20-acre site and construction of a 105,000-square-foot facility. Hadley Farms has committed to the creation of 121 new, full-time jobs over the next three years.“We have made a lot of progress over the past few months, and cannot wait until the shovel meets the dirt,” said Chris DeHaan, vice president, Hadley Farms. “This project has been a long time coming – three generations to be exact – but with the help of the Governor’s Action Team, Franklin County Area Development Corporation (FCADC), and of course the wonderful Washington Township, the dream is finally about to become a reality. We couldn’t be happier with the chosen location. The community has been so welcoming, and we cannot wait to be part of it.”Hadley Farms received a funding proposal from the Department of Community and Economic Development that includes a $250,000 Pennsylvania First Program grant. The company has also been encouraged to apply for a $2.4 million in low-interest loans from the Pennsylvania Industrial Development Authority.The project was coordinated by the Governor’s Action Team, an experienced group of economic development professionals who report directly to the governor and work with businesses that are considering locating or expanding in Pennsylvania, in collaboration with FCADC.“The final decision of Hadley Farms in choosing its Franklin County location was highly competitive with Maryland and West Virginia,” said Mike Ross, FCADC president. “The final decision was predicated on the seamless cooperation of the project stakeholders, including the Governor’s Action Team, the FCADC, the Franklin County Commissioners, Washington Township, and the Waynesboro Area School District.”Hadley Farms was founded in 1980. It produces a full-service line of bakery products for the food service, fundraising, and retail markets. All products are sold at the wholesale level only and are fully baked and delivered frozen. The individually wrapped lines primarily serve schools and airlines, while the gourmet line is oriented towards fundraising programs.For more information on Hadley Farms, visit more information about the Governor’s Action Team or DCED visit Governor Tom Wolf on Facebook: read more

Lack of Due Diligence Could Lead to Major Costs

first_imgInadequate due diligence now could result in expensive operational problems in the future, as well as potential long-term reputational damage.Andrew Marshall, Coldharbour Marine Chief Executive, predicts major problems ahead for those ship operators who have adopted a strategy of minimum compliance based on lowest cost, or simply agreed on ballast water treatment systems as part of a standard shipyard specification.Marshall said that many ship operators require a far better understanding of ballast water treatment technologies and their shortcomings in real-life applications.“Which charterer would risk hiring a ship with a known history of delays, or an operator with a list of PSC issues? You can be certain that the end-users of shipping services will be conducting their own due diligence to the very highest standards,” Marshall said.Delegates at the International Maritime Organization’s MEPC 72 meeting in April are likely to sign off the two-year delay on ballast water convention implementation dates for existing ships.Although the move would mean another two years of threats from invasive species, the extra 24 months will allow more time for the essential due diligence which many ship operators have only just begun to come to terms with, according to Marshall.“The correct choice of system requires a clear understanding of complex scientific and operational issues,” Marshall said.Marshall cited two examples: ultra violet systems can struggle in waters of high turbidity; and electro-chlorination may not be as effective in waters of low temperature and/or low salinity. In both cases, the treatment system may require significantly more power which may or may not be available on-board ship.Parts of the industry are finally addressing what he describes as “the BWTS conundrum”. But he also points out that whilst many are working hard to understand the practical issues facing the day-to-day operation of treatment systems, many others are simply relying on type approval certificates and testing data that often bears no resemblance to the conditions that their vessels will face in daily operation.last_img read more
