HOPEWELL TWP. -- PGT Trucking has found a permanent home for its new headquarters only six months after the company’s former building along Route 18 in Potter Township was purchased by Shell Chemicals Co.
According to a deed filed with the county, PGT Trucking bought 67 acres in the Hopewell Business Park from the Beaver County Corporation for Economic Development. The sale price was listed at $750,000.
The currently undeveloped plot of land sits in the same business park as PGT’s temporary offices at 4200 Industrial Blvd. in Hopewell Township.
Jim Palmer, BCCED president, called the site “raw land” and said PGT must undertake design work before it builds its new facility there.
He also said that part of the land is “very rough terrain” and that only half of it will be able to be developed.
