Taylor Northeast Breaks Ground on 5,600 Sq.ft. Facility Expansion
The expansion is designed to increase the company’s operating capacity in providing industrial cleaning equipment and material handling equipment to customers in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic regions.
Taylor Northeast was founded in 1988 and provided material handling equipment and forklifts to customers in New Jersey, Maryland, Delaware and Eastern Pennsylvania. It now additionally covers parts of Northeast and Mid-Atlantic regions and has added more products to its line of offerings.
The planning for the project expansion began in 2011, and is its largest expansion since its Baltimore branch opening. A new 5,000 sq.ft. drive-in warehouse is a part of the expansion. It will be added to the existing shop facility. The expansion also includes extension to the parts room.
Taylor Northeast had commenced construction of the extended facility on 22nd, August, which is expected to be complete by 2013.
Hollenbach Construction of Boyertown has been engaged to build the new additions. Earlier, in 1990, they had constructed the present facility.
Kevin Koch, the sales manager at Taylor Northeast, stated that the company required more space for increasing its operating capabilities. With the new expansion it will be able to add 1800 sq.ft. of shop space.
