LAWRENCEVILLE, PA, April 30, 2021 – Victaulic, the world’s leading manufacturer of mechanical pipe joining, fire protection and flow control solutions, has purchased a 220,000-square-foot manufacturing plant in Lawrenceville, PA and celebrated today with a grand reopening.
Victaulic’s Lawrenceville facility has added nearly 60 new jobs to Tioga County and anticipates adding approximately 40 more in the near future. It is expected many of the new positions will be filled by local talent from the area’s skilled workforce. New hires will join the current Victaulic team of more than 1,600 Pennsylvania employees and approximately 4,500 people globally.
“Victaulic is excited to expand its Pennsylvania footprint and bring back to life the Lawrenceville foundry to support the growth of our customers,” remarked Rick Bucher, President and CEO of Victaulic. “We appreciate the cooperation between state and local agencies as part of the site selection process, and we are very happy to be part of the Tioga community.
