Höganäs expansion to create new jobs in Cambria County

Höganäs will expand its Johnstown facility in North America, supporting the creation of 25 jobs in the area.

“Pennsylvania’s powder metals industry is a major contributor to our manufacturing sector,” says Governor Wolf. “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.”

To support the global demand for its high alloy products, Höganäs will expand its operations in Johnstown, Cambria County, adding new production capabilities to support additive manufacturing and other technologies. The project includes the construction of a 24,000-square-foot building, and the purchase of new machinery.

“This exciting investment, with the greatly appreciated support from the Governor’s Action Team and JARI, will help Höganäs continue to grow in Pennsylvania and provide innovative products for our customers in several quickly developing market areas,” says Dean Howard, President Americas Continent.

 “JARI is pleased to provide support to Höganäs as the company expands their operations in the City of Johnstown,” said Linda R. Thomson, president and CEO of the non-profit economic development organization JARI. “Höganäs is a world class, internationally recognized company with state-of-the-art products that is meeting the demands of the new manufacturing age. We appreciate the continuation of the proud Cambria County tradition of leading the way for innovation and we thank the Wolf Administration for their continuous support.”
