Senator Yudichak’s Statement on Northpoint Development securing Adidas and Patagonia as tenants at the Hanover Ridge Trade Center

Harrisburg, January 11, 2018 — State Senator John Yudichak (D-Luzerne/Carbon) issued the following statement today in response to the news that Northpoint Development has secured Adidas and Patagonia as new tenants at the Hanover Ridge Trade Center:

“The announcement that Adidas and Patagonia will complete the build out of the Hanover Ridge Trade Center culminates one of Pennsylvania’s biggest economic success stories from reclaiming abandoned mine lands to the creation of 3,000 new jobs,” said State Senator John Yudichak.

“Northpoint Development should be applauded for their private investment of $200 million and for their partnership with local governments in the South Valley and Luzerne County in securing three nationally recognized corporations to the Hanover Ridge Trade Center. Private investment leveraged with smart public investments like the $84 million South Valley Parkway is a proven driver of economic development. Northpoint Development’s blueprint for economic success should be replicated as we continue our work to create jobs in northeastern Pennsylvania,” said State Senator John Yudicak.
