FlexLink Officially Opens New U.S. Headquarters
Mar 31, 2004
FlexLink, the world leader in flexible conveyor systems, announced the official opening of its new state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Allentown, Pennsylvania, USA with a ribbon-cutting ceremony on March 23, 2004. Fredrik Jonsson, Global Managing Director, and Dave Clark, President, Americas Operations, shared the honor of cutting the ribbon.
FlexLink’s “Americas” Headquarters (the company’s global headquarters is in Sweden) recently relocated from nearby Bethlehem; 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. The move also fulfills the company’s philosophy of providing increasingly higher levels of service and exceptional facilities to support its growing customer base.
In making the announcement, Dave Clark said, “Our new 58,000 square foot 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.”
