FRIEDENS, SOMERSET COUNTY – PBS Coal will be changing hands soon after a deal for $60 million.

The Friedens-based company mostly produces coal used in steel manufacturing.

Now Canada Limited has entered into a sale agreement with Corsa Coal Corporation to buy the operation.

In December, PBS Coal announced they were laying off more than 130 workers because of a decline in orders.
