With assistance from the Pennsylvania Industrial Development Authority the new building will have 33,600 square feet of space and storage. It will be located right next to the existing 45,000 square-foot manufacturing facility. Construction will officially begin on Dec 20th, 2013.
Associated Construction established in 1982, a local company located in Shillington, PA will be taking on the project. Vice President and Co-Owner Joe Zidik commented, “Our growth over the last few years from a handful of employees to over 35, at present, should be considered slow and steady, and we prefer it that way. Because of the care required to process and analyze the products we make, we only run a one shift operation. But now that our technicians are becoming better trained, we plan to add an additional shift and as many as 10 more employees in the coming year.”
