Follett Completes Facility Expansion in Forks Township

Follett Products, LLC has completed a 90,000 sq. ft expansion of the Easton, PA facility. This is the third factory expansion since Follett relocated to Forks Township in 1967, and it increases the facility size to over 225,000 sq. ft. “This expansion allows us to streamline our operations under one roof, optimize factory layout to improve efficiency, and increase capacity to support the growing demand from our diverse customer bases in the foodservice, healthcare, and life sciences industries, both domestically and around the world,” according to Jeffrey Maybruck, Vice President of Operations.

“This investment is a testament to the dedication of the entire Follett workforce that has driven our success, and it cements Follett’s role as a premier employer in the Lehigh Valley,” says Korey Kohl, President of Follett and Group President of the Beverage Group for Middleby Corporation, the parent of Follett. “Our wide range of medical-grade refrigerators and freezers coupled with our best-in-class ice machines and dispensers serving the healthcare, foodservice and life science research industries provide an extremely stable portfolio of products that has helped us weather the pandemic and position Follett for future growth.”
