After starting the startup company at Bethlehem’s Lehigh University in 2003, EcoTech Marine always had a plan to return to the Lehigh Valley. J.G. Petrucci Company, Inc. worked with entrepreneurs to grow and expand its footprint in the Northeastern United States. The manufacturer leased a portion of the newly constructed, 88,007 sq. ft., Bethlehem Flex V, owned and operated by J.G. Petrucci. The state-of-the-art facility will help streamline the manufacturing process of EcoTech’s technology to meet their increasing product demand.
The 50,290 sq. ft. Development and Design/Build construction project features a 27,659 sq. ft. warehouse with 32′ ceiling clear height and a 20,116 sq. ft. two (2) story office space. The open concept features a conference room, break room, research & development area, and specialized manufacturing space.
The project came to fruition with the support of the City of Bethlehem officials, the Lehigh Valley Economic Development Corporation, and the Lehigh Valley Industrial Park executive teams.
