One of the largest engineering firms in the region is expanding.
To meet its growing needs, the company is moving its western Lehigh Valley corporate office in the Wescosville section of Lower Macungie Township at 6235 Hamilton Blvd. to a larger office in the township.
Al Kortze, president of Keystone Consulting Engineers, based in Bethlehem Township, said the firm is finalizing the lease with the property owner and would close the Wescosville office and move by February or March. The new address for its third office will be 5012 Medical Center Circle.
The company will keep its Bethlehem Township corporate office along with its second location, an office in Kresgeville, Monroe County.
The firm outgrew its Wescosville office.
“We are in two buildings there now, we kind of outgrew it,” Kortze said. “It was a fantastic location. We’d like to have everyone all in one building. It was the right size; it will allow us to have more growth. It will allow us for growth over the next several decades.”
The new site is 12,450 square feet. With 45 employees at its Wescosville site, the new location could expand to about 60 employees, he said.
Overall, the firm has 70 employees across all three sites.
In addition, the bulk of the firm’s business is also in proximity to its new site.
“It’s a very convenient spot for is,” Kortze said.
The firm represents many municipalities in that area and most of the municipalities in Northwest Lehigh County, he added. It also serves the Poconos and Berks County regions.
