Ancora – Mail Processing Facility
Location: Muhlenberg Township, Berks County, Pennsylvania.
Muhlenberg Greene was hired to assist JETSORT (original company) with the planning and design to create their largest mail processing facility on the east coast. Work included major renovations to 55,000 square feet of leased space, once occupied by a major battery producer. Approximately 11,000 square feet was designed to contain Ancora’s regional corporate headquarters for the east coast, with the remaining 44,000 square feet for production. The project included “phased construction” which allowed for the occupation of the production area while construction on the corporate office and employee common areas continued. One design feature of this project was the creation of an area for the supervisors located between their existing production floor area and the new production floor area. This area now serves as a central command post/teaming area.
