Conveyor and screening equipment supplier ASGCO recently announced that it will be expanding and moving their headquarters to a newly purchased and soon to be built operation in Pennsylvania. The company, which operates at 301 W. Gordon St. in Allentown, PA, will be moving to 730 Bangor Road in Nazareth, PA in the fall of 2021.
ASGCO’s most recent eastern Pennsylvania expansion involved the purchase of 19 acres and now is building a new facility to meet the growing demand for their products and services. The new facility will be 194,000 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.
Construction of the new facility will begin in July of 2020 and is expected to be completed in the summer of 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.
Founded in 1971, ASGCO is a manufacturer, distributor and service provider of proprietary conveyor and screening equipment and accessories that improve the safety and performance of bulk material handling systems.
