Meritor, a global supplier for commercial vehicles, is making a $7.8 million investment to expand its existing operations in York County. The expansion is expected to create 26 new jobs.

"Meritor has a long history in York,” said Chris Villavarayan, Meritor senior vice president. “York represents our largest brake footprint in North America, and we look forward to expanding it even further to support the company's leadership position in commercial vehicle brakes.”

Meritor will unveil a new air disc brake caliper assembly line and housing assembly line to support its growing air disc brake business at 801 Railroad Ave.

“We congratulate Meritor, a well-established York County industry, on this announcement and look forward to seeing it continue to grow and thrive,” York County Council Chairman Britt Blackwell said.

Hiring for the new positions is projected to begin in late summer.

The Coordinating Council for Economic Development has approved a $100,000 Closing Fund grant to York County to assist with the costs of building upfits.
