​CHESTER – After many years of redevelopment and marketing efforts, the long-vacant site of a former Hancock County pottery soon will have a new tenant.

Heavy Iron Oilfield Services, LP will relocate its operations from Canonsburg, Pa., to the Rock Springs Business Park, which once was the home of Taylor, Smith and Taylor Pottery in Chester.
