Sens. Mensch and Browne, Rep. Staats Announce $2 Million Redevelopment Grant for Bucks County Site

RICHLAND TOWNSHIP – Sen. Bob Mensch (R-24), Sen. Pat Browne (R-16) and Rep. Craig Staats (R-145) were on hand in Richland Township today to announce the awarding of a $2 million state redevelopment grant.

The lawmakers said Klover SEPA, Inc. was awarded $2 million for its Northfield Lot 3 manufacturing expansion. The grant will help fund the construction of a crane-served industrial land condominium that is fully air conditioned with an energy efficient air rotation system.

“As our region continues to emerge from a pandemic-ravaged economy, it’s important to bring these tax dollars back to the area to create jobs and provide economic stability,” Mensch said. “I’m happy to join my colleagues in announcing this critical investment in Bucks County.”

“Light manufacturing, especially companies like Klover, continue to play a vital role in the Pennsylvania economy by providing good-paying jobs and diversifying our economy,” said Browne, Chairman of the Senate Appropriations Committee. “I am honored to join my colleagues in announcing this state investment, which will help to expand Klover’s facilities, capabilities and positive impact on our region.”

“This grant will not only expand project possibilities for Klover SEPA, Inc., but will create a number of jobs for our community,” Staats said. “It is well-deserved funding for a company that demonstrates commitment to our businesses, community members and economy.”

 “We are proud and honored to have been selected for this grant to assist us in continuing to create jobs in Richland Township and the Greater Quakertown Area,” said Jerry Kilhefner, President of Klover Contracting, Inc.

The Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program is administered by the Office of the Budget for the acquisition and construction of regional economic, cultural, civic, recreational and historical improvement projects.
