Quaker Safety Announces Build to Suit

"Quaker Safety recently joined Gorski Engineering Inc. to break ground on a new 28,000 SF manufacturing and service facility at Northfield Business Campus in Richland Township, Bucks County. Gorski Engineering Inc. of Collegeville is the developer of Northfield Business Campus."

"I appreciate the hard work the Gorski team put in making this project possible and I am eager to move into the new facility," said Pete Nicholas of Quaker Safety. "We will employ more than 40 people when we occupy the new facility in November of this year." Quaker Safety is one of the leading manufactures of NFPA compliant garments for Structural and Proximity Fire Fighting. Since 1986 substantial research and development has enabled Quaker Safety to design and manufacture high quality turnout gear with a quick and reliable delivery schedule. Quaker Safety's rapid delivery, customer satisfaction and technical support remain unsurpassed in the fire service industry.

"Gorski Engineering Inc. of Collegeville, Northfield's developer, provided planning, design, construction and building service solutions to Quaker Safety. Northfield Business Campus is a 118 acre development. There is a 50 acre tract fronting on East Pumping Station Road and 68 acres of open space that preserves significant woodlands and provides riparian buffers. Jerry Gorski noted, "The development can house up to 400,000 square feet of building on the 50 acre tract, creating an opportunity for over 600 jobs."

"The supply constrained market of quality manufacturing buildings led us to search the build-to-suit market." "Gorski Engineering was able to design a new facility tailored to meet Quaker Safety s requirements and remain within the budget. The new 28,000 SF facility will allow for Quaker Safety s future growth."

Financing for both Northfield Business Campus and Quaker Safety's new facility is provided by Univest Corporation of Souderton."
