Mechanical pipe joining manufacturer plans to expand Pennsylvania facility


Easton, PA – Victaulic, a leading manufacturer of mechanical pipe joining solutions, plans to build a state-of-the-art, 400,000 square foot manufacturing centre in Lehigh Valley, Pennsylvania.

In addition to housing the company’s current light assembly operation, which has been conducted in partnership with Cast-Pac Inc. for 20 years, the new facility will include several millions of dollars in new equipment to modernize its manufacturing operations.

Robotic and optical technology in Victaulic’s new facility will advance the limits of quality control for the company’s castings and finished products through automated assembly operations.

Use of computerized, visual inspection systems can identify nonconformities, preventing them from being shipped to customers and maintaining Victaulic’s operational excellence in excess of Seven Sigma requirements.
