A Cincinnati granite countertop manufacturer and residential cabinet distributor has leased a 22,000-square-foot space in Cranberry, the governor's office announced last week.

Sims-Lohman Inc. plans to hire people for at least 50 new jobs over the next three years and invest more than $1 million in the site.

The Department of Community and Economic Development offered Sims-Lohman a funding package that includes a Pennsylvania First Program grant for $100,000 to spur investment and jobs and $50,000 in job creation tax credits.

The project was coordinated by the governor's Action Team and the Pittsburgh Regional Alliance.

“Our decision to open a manufacturing facility in the commonwealth allows us to continue growing in our service area with home center stores and building professionals,” John Beiersdorfer, president of Sims-Lohman, said in a statement.

“In addition to granite fabrication, we have also opened an attractive cabinet sales showroom at the same location.”
