Furniture companys $6.8 million three-step relocation expected to at least 138 new jobs in Pa.

A Pennsylvania company is bringing a manufacturing line from Michigan to one of its Pennsylvania facilities.

The move is part of a three-step relocation for Knoll Inc., a designer and manufacturer of workplace and residential furniture.

Knoll relocated its textile employees from Water Street in Upper Hanover Township, Montgomery County near East Greenville to a new 57,000-square-foot facility on West Pumping Station Road in Richland Township, Bucks County near Quakertown last year. The company is completing a relocation of a manufacturing line from its Michigan facility to its location in Montgomery County .

And finally, it will relocate and expand its mixing center facility in the Allentown area to a new facility on Congdon Hill Drive in Lower Macungie Township, Lehigh County. Knoll expects to grow its mixing center from 300,000 square feet to 500,000 square feet within the next three years.

 

Gov. Tom Wolf announced the three-step relocation last month in a press release. The company has pledged to invest at least $6.8 million into the project and has committed to creating at least 138 new jobs in Pennsylvania and retain an additional 920 jobs in the state over the next three years, the press release said.

 

The company is eligible for as much as $783,800 in state funding from the Department of Community and Economic Development.

 

The project was coordinated by the Governor’s Action Team, a group of economic development professionals who report directly to the governor and work with businesses that are considering locating or expanding in Pennsylvania.

Knoll Inc. was founded in the 1940s in East Greenville.
