Eastman Machine Company, a US-based leading cutting technology solution provider for fashion, textile and other industries, has announced the building acquisition and anticipated expansion of its headquarters in Buffalo, New York – a decision which is influenced by client and product line growth.
It’s worth recalling here that Eastman Machine recently closed on 707 Washington Street and will now occupy the entire city block between Washington and Ellicott streets, south of Goodell Street and north of E. Tupper Street.
The neighbouring building is a unique space of 12,589 square feet and will be renovated. Upon renovation, the space will serve as a robust demonstration centre for Eastman’s cutting technology and solutions.
Robert Stevenson, CEO, Eastman Machine, commented, “This acquisition is an innate step forward for Eastman. We need the room to continue giving our customers and prospects individualised attention.”
The acquisition deal comes shortly after Eastman Machine initiated a 5,000-square-foot expansion of its headquarters with the Erie County Industrial Development Agency (ECIDA).
The company says that the expanded facility will provide the capacity needed to accommodate the accelerated development and scope of its work. Eastman expects to break ground with the proposed US $ 1.66 million project later this year.
Robert touted the HQ expansion as “just another example of the company’s commitment to providing well-crafted cutting solutions and to American manufacturing”.
