US chocolate company Wolfgang Confectioners plans to invest more than $3.5 million to expand operations at its 137,000-square-foot facility in Loganville, York County.
Founded in 1921 as The D. E. Wolfgang Candy Company, Wolfgang Confectioners is a co-manufacturer of confectionery products for large consumer goods companies and entrepreneurs.
The planned expansion project at the company’s York County facility includes the redevelopment of an underutilised production line and the addition of a new line. The company has committed to creating at least 95 new jobs over the next three years.
“Wolfgang is renowned in York County and across the United States and is a major contributor to Pennsylvania’s historic food and confectionery manufacturing reputation,” said Pennsylvania Governor, Tom Wolf.
“This expansion is a major win—supporting increased production for Wolfgang consumers everywhere and bringing almost 100 new manufacturing jobs to York County communities.”
Wolfgang Confectioners president, Sam Miller, added: “We are honoured by the opportunity to continue our mission to make candy and bless lives while serving our employees, community and customers. Wolfgang has been a staple in the York community for the past 100 years and we look forward to carrying on the legacy.”
