A home remodeling company based in Whitehall will move its office and showroom into a larger space on an industrial site in Bethlehem near Lehigh Valley International Airport.
“We are moving from 5,000 square feet to 32,000 square feet, which is a huge upgrade,” said Rick Hinkle, general manager of Master’s Home Solutions.
Hinkle said his company is a third-generation business that began in 1957 and offers interior and exterior residential remodeling services, including roofing, siding, gutters, windows, doors and one-day bath installations. The company is also an authorized Bath Planet product dealer.
The new space will include a sales business office and a larger showroom, where the company can have a functioning walk-in tub and shower. The walk-in tub will have a shower option. Customers can test out the shower and tub in a private room, he added.
The company has not started construction yet, but he estimated that it would take about two to three months to finalize the interior renovations of the space.
Aside from moving to a new location, the company is also rebranding its image.
“We are known primarily as a roofing company but we are changing and rebranding all of that,” Hinkle said. “We want to be the predominant home improvement company in the area.”
Overall, Master’s Home Solutions has about 65 employees. Hinkle said his children, Nathan, Christy, Alyssa and Jared Hinkle are also principals in the business.
The new space is in a single building on 2.6 acres at 2147 Avenue C in Lehigh Valley Industrial Park I.
Mike Capobianco of Markward Group, a real estate firm in Upper Macungie Township, represented both the landlord and the tenant in the transaction.
