Souderton, PA, January 22, 2018 – Solar Manufacturing Incorporated, an industry leader in manufacturing advanced industrial vacuum furnaces, is relocating its headquarters to Sellersville, Pennsylvania. The Sellersville Borough Council recently granted unanimous preliminary and final approval for the new building located on a combined 8.5 acres of Lots #5 and #6 on East Clymer Avenue, Sellersville, PA 18960. The manufacturing area will occupy 40,000 square feet of the facility with an additional 17,500 square feet of office space. There is the option of an extra 22,500 square foot addition to the manufacturing building in the future.
“I am thrilled to see this project moving forward for our new headquarters.

Gorski Engineering is scheduled to begin breaking ground for the new eight million dollar facility in the spring of 2018, with completion and occupancy later that fall.
