FlexLink (Göteborg ,Sweden), a provider of flexible conveyor systems, announced the official opening of its new manufacturing facility in Allentown, PA, with a ribbon-cutting ceremony on March 23. Fredrik Jonsson, global managing director, and Dave Clark, president of Americas operations, shared the honor of cutting the ribbon.
FlexLink's Americas headquarters recently relocated from nearby Bethlehem, PA; the move into the new facility has nearly tripled the company's manufacturing and office space. The move and expansion to a larger facility are part of FlexLink's planned growth strategy and has been driven in part by the need for more manufacturing space for its conveyor and automation business.
Clark said, "Our new 58,000 sq. ft. facility will allow FlexLink to provide the industry's best conveying and automation—hardware and software solutions, respectively—to the pharmaceutical, personal care, assembly, automotive, machined parts, electronics, filling and packaging markets. With over 100 employees in the North and South America, FlexLink is poised for substantial growth in 2004."
The new office can be contacted at at 6580 Snowdrift Rd, Allentown, PA, 18016; (610) 973-8200.
