Pianca Packaging, LLC has signed a lease with Buligo Capital Partners for more than 28,000-square-feet of industrial space within the Riverside Business Center in Whitehall.
Headquartered in New Jersey, Pianca Packaging manufactures and provides custom-designed containers for end-users such as Applebee’s, Costco, Starbucks Coffee, Publix Super Markets and Wegmans Food Markets.
Newly released products feature tamper evident and resistant technology. The group intends to utilize the space to open and operate a new facility serving companies throughout the surrounding region.
Located at 1139 Lehigh Ave. and constructed in 1910, the 423,900 square foot single-story light industrial building was acquired by Buligo this spring.
Brian Knowles and Eric Zahniser, principals with Lee & Associates of Eastern Pennsylvania arranged the lease transaction.
Riverside Business Center features average ceiling heights of 20 feet, heavy power, and ample automobile and truck parking.
The center is located adjacent to US Route 22, with immediate access to Interstate 78 and the Pennsylvania Turnpike.
“Pianca Packaging was searching for a new location that could satisfy several important criteria including the availability of heavy power to fuel its manufacturing operations, access to major highways including US Route 22 and a strong labor pool,” said Brian Knowles of Lee & Associates of Eastern Pennsylvania. “Riverside Business Center emerged as the winner based on the immediate availability of space and its core location within a region with a recognized industrial user base.”
