Air Products has announced that it will build its new global headquarters facility in Pennsylvania’s Lehigh Valley.
The new headquarters facility will be built on a 50-acre tract of property southeast of the intersection of Mill Creek Rd. and the Route 222 Bypass.
Groundbreaking is expected in March 2019 with occupancy targeted by summer 2021. The new location will be the base for about 2,000 Air Products employees with capacity for growth, the company said in a statement.
The new headquarters site will include new administration offices, a research and development facility, and an enclosed parking structure for employees. A cost estimate is not being disclosed at this time.
The headquarters will remain at its current location (7201 Hamilton Blvd., Allentown), and employees will continue to work there during construction and completion of the new facilities, according to Air Products.
The company plans to make its existing 235-acre location available to the real estate market.
