Lititz, Pa. — Fenner Precision Polymers, which exists within Michelin Group's High-Tech Materials division, is consolidating its Pennsylvania operations under one very large roof, reports our sister publication Rubber News.
The company will begin manufacturing operations in a new 400,000-square-foot building on 41 acres in Manheim in central Pennsylvania, by 2025.
"Fenner's continued focus on growth and this exciting new development project is a testament to the strength of the manufacturing industry and we look forward to spurring it onward through the innovation and productivity that will be born here," said Jack Krecek, divisional managing director for Fenner Precision Polymers.
The 41 acres, located in Lancaster County's Penn Township, is zoned light industrial, fitting the Fenner mission perfectly. The land previously was owned by Kreider Farms.
A purchase price for the land or overall capital investment for Fenner for the development was not known.
"The project plans to consolidate the majority of Fenner's manufacturing plant sites in Pennsylvania into one location," Fenner stated in a June 20 press release.
It was not immediately clear what facilities in Pennsylvania would be consolidated. Fenner has rubber and polyurethane operations.
Fenner Precision Polymers has manufacturing facilities in Lancaster and Manheim, Pa., as well as Wilmington, N.C., and Los Angeles.
The company recently opened a new, 35,000-sqare-foot "momentum center" in Lititz, Pa., about 5 miles from Manheim.
Fenner has additional global manufacturing facilities in Italy, the United Kingdom and China.
