Action Manufacturing Chooses PA over South Carolina

"Action Manufacturing purchased a 128,000 sq.ft. former Ferag Inc. printing-automation equpiment plant at 190 Rittenhouse Circle, Keystone Industrial Park, Bristol, PA. Action is a Philadelphia-based company that makes military fuses and detonators maker, for $6.125 million.

Action boss Arthur Mattia has been considering moving the company and 175 jobs from aging buildings on the St. Christopher's Hospital's campus at 2nd and Erie, to North Carolina, which is trying to entice Northern companies South to replace manufacturing jobs that have left for China and other countries.

Their broker said the state and local government officials deserve credit for raising job-training funds to help keep Action in Pennsylvania."
