In South Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, J.G. Petrucci Company, Inc. partnered with Richard Thompson, former CEO of Freshpet, Inc., to redevelop and revitalize a historical Bethlehem Steel building.
The Factory LLC, founded by Thompson, knew that they needed a development team with strong roots and strategic Lehigh Valley relationships to achieve their vision for the historic property.
Located just three blocks from Lehigh University, The Factory was strategically designed and constructed to house all the resources and expertise needed to support innovation and growth for emerging companies. J.G. Petrucci worked with The Factory to design and build a communal, state-of-the-art commercial kitchen with live video production capabilities and food safety areas. In addition, the team created a unique concept for the ofﬁce spaces and conference rooms by repurposing and furnishing shipping containers.
