Alvin H. Butz, Inc. Managing Construction Project for Follett Corporation

Allentown, PA, August 14, 2013 . . . Alvin H. Butz, Inc. is currently underway on a construction project for Follett® Corporation's facility located at 801 Church Lane in Easton, PA.

The project includes renovations to the existing facility as well as a 25,000 square-foot expansion. The expansion ensures that Follett Corporation - a Lehigh Valley-based manufacturer of ice storage and transport systems, ice and water dispensers, ice and beverage dispensers, Chewblet® ice machines, and medical-grade refrigerators and freezers - will not only retain its 300+ current employees, but will add 50 new jobs within the next three years.

"In the relatively short time since construction started, Butz' project team has been a great partner; efficient, attentive to quality and safety, and timely with their communications and updates." says Steve Follett, President and CEO of Follett Corporation. "Their dedication to the job and years of experience have proven vital to seeing this project come to fruition."

The expansion will consist mainly of a pre-engineered metal building addition which connects to the existing facility. Additional features of the expansion and renovations project include:

  • Full fire protection
  • Four new loading docks
  • Eight overhead doors
  • Renovations to the existing plant restrooms
The entire project is tentatively expected to take five months to complete, with an anticipated end date of November 2013.

"Being headquartered in the heart of the Lehigh Valley, we understand the importance of promoting growth and development throughout the region," says Greg L. Butz, President and CEO of Alvin H. Butz, Inc. "Our project team is excited to turn this project into something that not only benefits Follett Corporation, but the entire community as well."
