Höganäs says that it plans to expand its operations in Johnstown, PA, USA, adding new production capabilities to support additive manufacturing (AM) and other technologies.

The project includes the construction of a 24,000 ft2 building, and the purchase of new machinery. The expansion will help create 25 jobs in the area, the company says.

‘Pennsylvania’s powder metals industry is a major contributor to our manufacturing sector,’ said Thomas Wolf, governor of Pennsylvania. ‘Höganäs’ decision to expand here is great news for Pennsylvania manufacturing, and will provide at least 25 reliable, family-sustaining jobs for Cambria County workers.’
