Victaulic to Build 400,000 Sq. Ft. Facility
Victaulic, a leading manufacturer of mechanical pipe joining solutions, has unveiled a plan to build an additional state-ofthe- art manufacturing center in Lehigh Valley, Pennsylvania. The 400,000 square foot facility is the result of increased domestic demand for the company's products. The facility is expected to break ground later this year and be fully operational in 2019.

“This new facility will play an important role in meeting increased customer demand, while also producing the highest quality products in the industry - something our customers have come to expect from us since our first innovation nearly 100 years ago,” said John F. Malloy, CEO of Victaulic. “A major aspect of our business strategy has always been to manufacture products in close proximity to our customers,” commented Malloy. “While we already manufacture 80 percent of domestically sold products in the United States, this facility will further enhance our product delivery capabilities, making our U.S. operations even more competitive.”

Along with the expansion, Victaulic anticipates adding 40-50 new jobs by the end of 2018. From machining and lab technicians to assemblers and production staff, it is expected that many of the new positions will be filled by local talent from the area’s skilled workforce. New hires will join the current Victaulic team of 3,600 employees globally, of which 49 percent are located in the United States.
