Business is booming and Levan Machine and Truck Equipment has outgrown their current location at 3417 Pricetown Road in Fleetwood. A groundbreaking ceremony was held by Levan Machine and their design build contractor, DESCCO Design and Construction of Fleetwood, on Oct. 14 at the site of the new production facility to be built. Levan’s new, second location is 3404 Pricetown Road across from their current shop.

“I am very excited about the growth of the business. We are all looking forward to moving into our new building” said President of Levan Machine, Brian Levan.

Levan has continued to grow the business his grandfather started in 1936 and is proud to be building his new shop and second location at the very site where his grandfather started it all. The new facility will be 8,000 square feet with six truck bays which will allow them to increase the amount of van and truck up-fitting they are able to do and to provide quicker turnaround times.

Staying local and working with companies that have businesses based in his community is important to Levan. Locally owned businesses to work of the new production facility include Design Builder, DESCCO Design & Construction, Fleetwood; Architect, Watkins Architect LTD, Fleetwood; Land Development plan, Berks Surveying, Fleetwood; HVAC and Plumbing, Earl F Kegerise Inc., Fleetwood; Electrician, Schatz Electric, Inc., Robesonia; Masonry, Fenstermacher Construction Services Inc., Kutztown; Site Work, M&A Excavating, Mertztown; Paving, Ronnie C.
