DEIST INDUSTRIES EXPANDING INTO NEW SITE
Deist Industries, Inc. will expand their business by purchasing and renovating a vacant manufacturing facility in Saegertown Borough, Crawford County, Pennsylvania. The company and it’s subsidiaries found they required more space to meet projected demand and to expand research and development. A currently-vacant 60,000-square-foot facility will be renovated into a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility.
This facility will support Deist Industries’s commitment to developing and manufacturing innovative products for the work truck industry, along with increased levels of service for their dealer partnerships. The company plans to invest at least $7.6 million into the project. The project will result in the creation of 38 new, full-time jobs and the retention of 91 existing Pennsylvania jobs over the next three years.
Deist Industries anticipates that the move to this facility will be completed in the third quarter of 2019.
