Novatec Inc., a Baltimore-based auxiliary equipment manufacturer, is moving its 2-year-old plant in Brookhaven, Pa., to a larger building in nearby Glen Mills, Pa., to meet new business levels.
In 2016, Novatec opened a second factory in a 30,000-square-foot plant in Brookhaven, a suburb of Philadelphia, to handle some production of vacuum loaders, electrical panels, pumps and receivers and conveying accessories.
The move freed up space at Novatec's headquarters plant in Baltimore for NovaWheel dryers, central drying hoppers and a growing area of extrusion downstream equipment.
Now Novatec is moving to a nearby building with 80,000 square feet in Glen Mills.
The building was acquired by Steve Maguire, the owner of Maguire Products Inc. of Aston, Pa. Novatec is privately held by Steve Maguire and Conrad Bessemer.
The towns of Glen Mills, Brookhaven and Aston are all west of Philadelphia.
Bessemer, Novatec's president and CEO, said the new Glen Mills factory will be fully functional by July 1. He said Novatec will boost employment there from 20 to 30 people.
