A Schuylkill County-based business recently announced a major investment to expand its business here and in York County.

Cardinal Systems Inc., based in North Manheim Twp., is investing $9 million into its expansion that promises to create 60 new, full-time jobs. The new jobs will be combined between its facility along Route 61 outside Schuylkill Haven and and in Manchester Twp., York County.

This move comes after the company says it experienced an increase in demand for its products in 2020. Cardinal Systems is a custom fabricator and manufacturer of steel wall panels, thermomoulded and extruded plastic products, and vinyl pool liners.

Cardinal Systems owner Rachel Bradley says in a statement released by the Governor’s office, “We are excited to embark on this expansion of our manufacturing facility during this unprecedented busy time brought on by the pandemic.

“As a family-owned business, we believe strongly in investing in our people and our operation as a way to provide a solid foundation for our success as an American manufacturer. We look forward to using this opportunity for growth to pave the way for our future.”

Part of this $9 million investment in the company will include new office and warehouse space at its Schuylkill County headquarters. That will allow the company to “streamline its shipping operations, repurpose its existing warehouse facility, reduce truck traffic on Route 61, allow the company to increase capacity on its production floor, and create additional offices … and training space,” according to information from the state.

Cardinal Systems will also upgrade its on-site sewer system at its Schuylkill County location.

“The Cardinal team is very excited about our building expansion. We appreciate the support of the Governor’s Action Team in achieving our goals. The new warehouse and office space will allow Cardinal to continue to expand and grow our operations and to continue to be an employer of choice in Schuylkill County,” Cardinal Systems president Deb Haase says.

Cardinal Systems received some state funding as part of its investment:

SEDCO is pleased to have assisted them in this project.”
