Screen printing manufacturer Vastex International announced in March that it has moved into its new manufacturing facility and headquarters in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania (PA), US, from Allentown, PA.
“The new building is purpose-built for workflow efficiency, with raw materials received in one bay, moving through metalworking, welding, finishing, electrical and assembly departments, with completed screen printing equipment loaded for shipment through three additional bays,” explained Vastex’s president Mark Vasilantone.
Included in the facility is dedicated space for new product development, administrative offices, meeting/conference spaces, an equipment showroom and a large, hands-on classroom area with a full complement of screen printing equipment for Vastex University, the company’s training programme for entry-level to professional screen printers.
Mark added: “The new plant provides the layout as well as the growing room to produce equipment significantly faster and more efficiently. We purchased an 8.25 acre site, and designed the new building with a break-out wall to expand our space when we again reach capacity.”
