Lifted 123,000 square foot sections of roof, for expansion of food distribution operation. The company purchased the building at an attractive price, due to its low 13’ clearance. The roof-lifting procedure created a more useful and valuable structure with 21’ and 30’ clearances. Project was featured as the cover story in the Reading Eagle Business Weekly, highlighting the re-development of the former Valley Forge American Flag facility which had relocated, putting the town’s employees out of work. The article highlighted that this project provided new jobs for many of those local employees.
