Re:Build Manufacturing Plans New Kensington, Pennsylvania, Operations
The new regional headquarters, located at the Advanced Manufacturing Park, will focus on state-of-the-art fabrication, manufacturing, and integration and assembly projects in high-growth, innovation-driven industries including: energy, life sciences, robotics, electric mobility, satellite communications, and aerospace.
“Growing up in the heartland, I experienced firsthand the impacts of the rise and fall of American manufacturing on the well-being of our country,” said Jeff Wilke, Chairman and Co-Founder of Re:Build Manufacturing. “We created Re:Build to help our nation secure a more resilient future by investing in high tech manufacturing. The new facility in New Kensington is a major milestone in this journey, helping to revitalize an area once central to American industry and bringing back much needed, sustainable jobs. A big thank you to Governor Shapiro and community leaders like Thomas Tull for helping make this project a reality.”
Re:Build received a funding proposal from the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development for a $1.5 million Pennsylvania First grant, a $7 million grant through the Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program, and are encouraged to apply for loans through the Pennsylvania Industrial Development Authority, all of which is focused on rejuvenating the New Kensington Advanced Manufacturing Park.
“I’m proud that Re:Build chose Western Pennsylvania for this project, sending a strong signal to other companies that Pennsylvania is open for business and we want you here,” noted Governor Josh Shapiro. “Making our Commonwealth a leader in innovation, job creation, and economic development is a top priority for my Administration, and we stand ready to continue making projects like this one possible.”
