All manufacturing for the Thermal Processing Systems business unit of Gasbarre Products Inc. was moved to Gasbarre’s 50,000 ft2 facility in St. Marys, Pa., at the end of 2019.
In 2011, Gasbarre acquired the J.L. Becker brand of industrial furnace equipment. Over the last eight years, Gasbarre has run parallel manufacturing facilities in Michigan and Pennsylvania for its furnace equipment. Consolidating the manufacturing of its common product lines allows for more efficient use of its floor space, equipment and manufacturing processes. The company plans to add 12,000 ft2 of manufacturing space and office space in St. Marys.
Gasbarre will retain a sales, engineering and service facility near Detroit, and Ben Gasbarre continues in his leadership role within the Plymouth, Mich., location. In addition to designing and servicing equipment from the Michigan office, Gasbarre plans to add a technical center for process testing and demonstration purposes.
