At the request of the subject firm, the Department reviewed the certification for workers of the subject firm.
New information provided by the subject firm revealed that the Middletown, Pennsylvania facility is supported by workers in the subject firm's auxiliary facilities located at Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, Winston-Salem, North Carolina, Shakopee, Minnesota, Eatontown, New Jersey, and Berwyn, Pennsylvania.
