Chan and Chan USA Renovating, Expanding New Lehigh Valley Location

by Steve Lubetkin,
J.G. Petrucci has partnered with Chan and Chan (USA), a Brooklyn based manufacturer of frozen Chinese food, to complete significant renovations at the company’s newly purchased facility in Bethlehem, PA. The new facility will enable the firm to enhance its food production capabilities and increase its distribution radius.

“Chan and Chan USA is one of the many food manufacturing and distribution firms that are taking advantage of the fantastic resources the Lehigh Valley provides,” says Jim Petrucci, founder and president of J.G. Petrucci Co. “This new central location will allow them to access nearly 40% of the United States population within a day’s drive.”

Chan and Chan USA will revitalize two vacant buildings located at 2320 Avenue A in Bethlehem. The first building, which is slated to be operational by October 2018, will be constructed to USDA and GFSI processing standards. It will feature 8,000 square feet of new freezer and cooler storage for Chan & Chan’s products. The renovations include installing new insulated metal panels, refrigeration equipment, new freezer slab and more.

Phase 2 of the project, which is currently in design, will include the renovation of a 72,000 square foot building, which will serve as Chan & Chan’s processing facility. J.G. Petrucci is working closely with Chan and Chan (USA) to design a facility that will accommodate the company’s current real estate need and strategically plan for its future growth.

“J.G. Petrucci brought a unique blend of experience to this project and we value the insight they provided when designing this facility,” says Albert Chan. “They utilized their experience in designing and building USDA compliant facilities to create plans for a flexible plant that will allow us to grow our business in the Lehigh Valley.”

Chan & Chan says the new operation will create approximately 75 new jobs upon completion.
