Workforce Availability

Mericle understands that a critical factor in your site selection decision is whether there is adequate available labor to staff your new operation at 1110 Hanover Street.  As such, Mericle asks you to consider several factors during your deliberations.

First, the building is located in a densely populated area. According to pasitesearch.com, 106,548 people live within 5 miles of 1110 Hanover Street, 194,291 people live within 10 miles and 424,168 live within 20 miles.

Second, because the building is just 1.4 miles from I-81 via S.R. 29, your employees will find it easy getting to work every day. Daily bus service from the Luzerne County Transportation Authority is available.

Third, Hanover Industrial Estates is already home to office operations for firms such as Mondelez, Genpact, Telerx, WNS, and the American Red Cross, thus confirming that office companies are able to staff their operations successfully in the park.

Also, as indicated below, Northeastern Pennsylvania’s  unemployment rate almost always runs higher than state and national averages.  Typically, 20,000 to 25,000 people who live within 30 miles of Hanover Industrial Estates are unemployed.
