The local Duracell plant is planning a $60 million expansion, according to county officials.

The plant, which makes every Duracell AA battery in the United States, is planning about 20 to 25 new hires with the expansion, Lancaster County Economic Development Corp. President Keith Tunnell told County Council on Monday night.

It's not a lot of extra employees, but Tunnell said it's a good sign about the future of the plant, which now has about 500 employees here.

"I hope this means they'll be staying here for a long time," Tunnell said.
