Supporters and local officials gathered at the Allentown Bridgeworks Enterprise Center on Thursday afternoon to welcome its newest tenant, Amorphic Tech.
Amorphic Tech is run by Andrew Schevets, who is using space at the manufacturing incubator to design, create and manufacture fluid systems and energy recovery technology.
“We work from concept to prototype to physically functional goods for our clients,” Schevets said.
While Schevets just began setting up operations up in March, Anthony Durante, program manager for the Allentown Economic Development Corp., which oversees Bridgeworks, noted that Schevets already has leveraged early success, developing a test system for a Lehigh Valley pump company into contracts around the world.
Schevets said he has orders for equipment to be used in a national research project run by a Lehigh University professor and as well as others for use in manufacturing facilities in China and France.
Durante said businesses such as Amorphic Tech are what a manufacturing incubator such as Bridgeworks is designed for hosting. It gives companies the space to begin and to grow based on their needs.
“We would have never thought we’d be needing a 50-foot loading dock, but here we are using it all the time, shipping products out internationally,” Schevets said.
