ASGCO Manufacturing Inc. will be expanding and moving its headquarters to a newly purchased and soon to be built operation in Nazareth, Pennsylvania, in fall 2021. The company purchased 19 acres and is building a new facility to meet the growing demand for its products and services. The new facility will be 194,000 total square ft, with 30,000 square ft of offices, wellness, and training areas, and the rest dedicated to fabrication, manufacturing, assembly, distribution and service departments. The company currently operates in Allentown, Pennsylvania, a little less than 30 miles from Nazareth, and manufactures, distributes and services accessories for conveyor and screening equipment.
Construction of the new facility will begin in July and is expected to be completed in summer 2021. The Allentown operations have been an integral part of the design-build team, with JVI Inc. serving as the project’s general contractor and Alliance Architecture serving as the project’s architect.
All 90 current Allentown and Nazareth employees are expected to move to the new building. While the relocation itself will not immediately result in any new positions, the company said it anticipates a 30% increase in personnel based on projected sales growth expectations.
