DYNCORP BRINGS 2,000 JOBS TO YORK

 DYNCORP BRINGS 2,000 JOBS TO YORK
 YORK, Pa., June 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Gov. Robert P. Casey today


welcomed the opening of the DynCorp computerized postal coding operation here, calling it proof once again that Pennsylvania is good for business.
 The company is expected to create more than 2,000 jobs this year and 2,750 within three years.
 "We were confident that this project would be a success, so we pledged nearly $3.9 million in financial and technical assistance," the governor said at grand opening ceremonies.
 The $3.9 million in state loans, grants and tax credits includes:
 -- A $650,000 Economic Development Partnership Fund loan awarded last October to help renovate the 40,000-square-foot facility.
 -- A $200,000 Industrial Communities Site Program grant that was made to the City of York in April to construct a free public parking lot.
 The state has provided DynCorp with an additional $2.3 million in employment services through the Department of Labor and Industry. The services include the pre-screening and recruitment of job applicants and the training of newly hired employees.
 "Soon DynCorp will be realizing what other Pennsylvania employers already know -- that no one works harder to help business succeed than the Pennsylvania worker," Casey said.
 DynCorp, which announced its plans for the facility last August, will operate a computerized bar coding operation that will serve five general mail facilities for the U.S. Postal Service.
 The facility is located at the site of the former Allied Ampenol building.
 The project was a joint effort between the York County Industrial Development Corporation, the City of York and the Governor's Response Team.
 Since its development in 1987 the response team, which operates out of the state Department of Commerce, has worked on more than 400 projects and helped create or retain over 180,000 jobs.
