Palram Americas Opens New Logistics Center in Pennsylvania

Palram Americas, a manufacturer of polycarbonate and PVC sheets, has announced the completion of an 80,000-square-foot logistics center positioned directly next door to its Americas headquarters in Weisenberg Township, Kutztown, Pa.

“We did run into some issues due to the harsh winter of 2013, resulting in a delayed opening,” states John Seiffert, vice president of Business Development for Palram Americas. “However, now that the building is operational, we are confident this dedicated logistics center will greatly increase our delivery capabilities and result in greater customer satisfaction.”

The building is a $5 million dollar construction project with two phases. Phase one consisted of this logistics center and includes an additional 80,000 square feet of outside storage space. An additional 80,000-square-foot building will be constructed during phase two and will be built in the near future. The general contractor for the project was Serfass Construction of Allentown, Pa.

This new logistics center is just the latest building block of growth for the company. Palram opened its polycarbonate plant in Kutztown in 2000 and, over the ensuing years, built two large additions to this original plant. In 2007, Palram constructed an entire PVC manufacturing facility at the site. The logistics center, completed in November 2014, is now fully operational.
