GREENCASTLE — A new warehouse due to open the end of May in Antrim Township will add 67 new jobs paying up to $20 an hour to the county’s workforce.
Hiring has already begun, according to the facility’s general manager, Nancy Schmidt Cena.
Cena is employed by NFI Industries, a third party logistics operator who will both staff the facility and oversee the day-to-day operation of the warehouse.
The company whose products will be distributed at the warehouse has not been announced yet.
Cena said her firm is looking to hire forklift operators. shipping and receiving clerks, material handlers, cycle counters, custodians, a yard jockey and a logistics coordinator.
There will also be four lead positions open.
Pay will range from a low of $13.50 an hour for custodians to $20 an hour for the logistics coordinator. The majority of the jobs will fall within the $15.50 to $17.50 an hour range.
Cena said the warehouse would be handling dry food grade products.
Although Cena had said in a social media post that NFI would have a job fair in Chambersburg April 5, the event will be open only to those who apply online.
Applications will be reviewed and a recruiter will call and set up an interview time and place.
Cena said the warehouse should open on May 28 but new hires would start about two weeks earlier.
“They would need new hire, safety and system training,” she said.
Cena described NFI Industries as “a great company to work for.”
“We are growing rapidly,” she said. “We have a couple of facilities in this area and then we have transportation teams in this area also.”
