Myers Power Products, an electrical supply company based in California, will replace its existing plant in the Lehigh Valley Industrial Park with a facility more than twice its size in nearby Hanover Township in Northampton County, reports the Morning Call.
The 93,472-square-foot production facility will be built on 7 acres at 34 S. Commerce Way. The structure will replace Myers' facility at 2000 Highland Ave., also in Hanover Township. The 43,000-square-foot facility opened in 2001.
The new space will also house 10,278 square feet of office space, the company said. Myers said the current facility employs about 60 workers and it is yet to be determined if the company will be hiring more employees for the new location.
"The new facility, which will be larger and more efficient, will allow Myers to continue providing outstanding service to electrical engineers and contractors worldwide," said Bruce Steigerwald, general manager for Myers, in a news release.
