Amorphic Tech Ltd. has joined the Bridgeworks Enterprise Center, the business incubator in Allentown.
Founded in 2013 by Andrew Schevets, Amorphic is an engineering company that designs prototypes for industrial mechanical systems. Its clients range from power generation plants to global pump manufacturers and academic institutions.
The company, which operated out of a small space at the center in a “pre-incubation” arrangement, is relocating to a larger space in the building now that it has been accepted into the incubation program and it is growing, said Anthony Durante, program manager.
Amorphic will focus on providing a full range of engineering, manufacturing and prototyping services for fluid dynamics and related industries, according to the center.
Amorphic will become part of the center’s incubator program run by the Allentown Economic Development Corp., which provides help for companies from launch to rapid growth and long-term success and profitability. The center has helped launched more than 53 companies since it was founded in 1989.
“Andrew has a solid plan to grow the company, and we are pleased that AEDC can help play a key role in that journey toward success and profitability,” said Scott Unger, executive director of AEDC.
Durante said Schevets has “tenacity and grit,” which he said are “two key qualities that are absolutely necessary for an entrepreneur to have. It’s the only way they survive the highs and lows of launching a company.”
The AEDC board of directors recommended Amorphic Tech after Schevets and his team presented its business plan to the Bridgeworks advisory committee in January.
Amorphic’s fluid dynamics services range from research and development in energy recovery to constructing complete, smart fluid systems.
The company recently contracted with Lehigh University to help design and build a modular water purification system for research that will be conducted at a federal laboratory.
“We would like to use our experience, skill set and equipment to address the growing global need for clean water,” Schevets said.
The company plans to increase its manufacturing capabilities and broaden its engineering services for development projects, according to Bridgeworks.
