Hybrid Automaker In Northeast Pennsylvania

Inquiries have been made about a hybrid automaker locating in Northeast Pennsylvania, perhaps in the Scranton and Wilkes Barre area.

If it happens it could mean 1000 jobs at start up and 4000 jobs to follow.

Why not?

The transportation infrastructure is ideal.  There are three ocean going ports in reasonably close proximity with Baltimore, which already has a huge automobile shipping presence, Philadelphia, and New York.  There are two inland water ports with Pittsburgh on the river system, and Erie or Cleveland on the Lakes.  There are several interstate highway alternatives and a well established rail system.

Several top of the line engineering colleges are in close proximity with Drexel, Lehigh, Bucknell, Penn State, and a few more.

The region has a skilled and educated work force which would be perfect for such a manufacturer.

Ron,

I agree.  This is a good area for such a manufacturing plant.

It sounds like a great location for a hybrid plant. Good luck to those in the area who stand to benefit the most...especially those benefiting from the increase in jobs.

Kathy,

Around this region, Harleys are already being manufactured so why not hybrid autos as well.

John,

Even if not in this area, it would be good to see "manufacturing" jobs being generated within the United States.

Ron,

It sounds like a good location to me.  However, somebody will benefit with about 5000 jobs.

Ron,

I wonder if that area has enough people to support such a large operation.

That is a good chunk of jobs.  I hope that it happens.
