ASGCO Manufacturing Inc. recently announced it 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 currently operates in Allentown, Pennsylvania, a little less than 30 miles from Nazareth.
The company recently purchased 19 acres and is now building a new facility to meet the growing demand for their products and services. The new facility will be 194,000 total sq. ft., with 30,000 sq. ft. of offices, wellness, and training areas, and the rest dedicated to fabrication, manufacturing, assembly, distribution and service departments. ASGCO manufactures, distributes and services accessories for conveyor and screening equipment.
Construction of the new facility will begin in July 2020 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 anticipates a 30% increase in personnel based on projected sales growth expectations.
