Chan and Chan Completing Major Renovations at New Plant in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania
The new facility will enable the firm to enhance its food production capabilities and increase its distribution radius.
Chan and Chan USA will revitalize two vacant buildings located at 2320 Avenue A in Bethlehem. The first building, which is slated to be operational by October 2018, will be constructed to USDA and GFSI processing standards. It will feature 8,000 square feet of new freezer and cooler storage for Chan & Chan’s products. The renovations include installing new insulated metal panels, refrigeration equipment, new freezer slab and more.
Phase 2 of the project, which is currently in design, will include the renovation of a 72,000 square foot building, which will serve as Chan & Chan’s processing facility. A representative from Chan & Chan said the new operation would create approximately 75 new jobs upon completion.
J.G. Petrucci, a privately held development and design/build firm, is working closely with Chan and Chan to design a facility that will accommodate the company’s current real estate need and strategically plan for its future growth. “Chan and Chan USA is one of the many food manufacturing and distribution firms that are taking advantage of the fantastic resources the Lehigh Valley provides,” explains Jim Petrucci, Founder and President of J.G. Petrucci Co., Inc. “This new central location will allow them to access nearly 40% of the United States population within a day’s drive.”
“J.G. Petrucci brought a unique blend of experience to this project and we value the insight they provided when designing this facility,” explained Albert Chan. “They utilized their experience in designing and building USDA compliant facilities to create plans for a flexible plant that will allow us to grow our business in the Lehigh Valley.”
