Thirty jobs are coming to a Northumberland County, Pennsylvania, soybean processing plant thanks in part to a $2.6 million state grant, reports The Daily Item.

The grant to Boyd Station LLC was among $31.3 million in grants approved for 26 rail projects statewide and announced on Monday.

The business will use the grant to expand its rail infrastructure, construct four new tracks and install unloading equipment for the plant, located along Route 54 between Riverside and Elysburg.

“The construction is going to allow us to handle increased carloads and unit trains,” Bryan Cotner, Boyd Station president, told The Daily Item.

He said that will replace 25,000 trucks with rail freight over the next five years.

The approximately 30 new jobs will support the existing 50 employees currently employed at Boyd Station.
