Medical product supplier buys flex building for $1.2M

A medical product supplier bought a multi-tenant flex building in East Allen Township for $1.24 million.

The company, Delco Innovations, based in Schnecksville, plans to move in July to the building, which is at 6583 Ruch Road in East Allen Township.

Delco will renovate the interior of their new building and should move in July 1, said Brandon Boyer, co-owner and COO.

Delco’s 11 employees will occupy the entire first floor of the building, taking up about 8,304 square feet of its 12,678 square feet overall, said Kelly Berfield, senior vice president at Colliers International in Upper Macungie Township.

Berfield and Ryan Dietrick, senior vice president at Colliers, represented both the buyer and the seller in the transaction.

According to Northampton County property records, the seller is Ruch Road Properties LLC.

The building’s second floor has two tenants – Family Tree Karate, a martial arts school, and Trennic Data Services LLC.

Delco will lease space to those two tenants, Boyer said.

For Delco, the need for additional room prompted the move. In Schnecksville, the company occupies about 2,000-square feet of office space and 2,500 square feet of warehouse space, Boyer said.

“We have just been growing,” Boyer said. “We just need more room for employees and warehouse space.”

Founded in 2012, Delco Innovations distributes orthopedic and rehab equipment to medical supply companies and physicians nationwide, Blaise Derrico, a co-owner of the company, said in a statement.

It will be sharing the space with Trend Medical, a separate company but with the same owners, Boyer said.

Trend, a contract manufacturer, will use the space for its headquarters. It makes knee, wrist and hand braces, among other orthotic and therapy products.

Delco will use the new space for a headquarters as well, but also for distribution and shipping.
