Chinese food manufacturer opening new facility in Lehigh Valley


J.G. Petrucci has partnered with a Brooklyn-based food manufacturer to complete significant renovations at the company’s newly purchased facility in Bethlehem.

Chan and Chan (USA) Inc. is a top producer of frozen Chinese Foods in the United States. The new facility will enable the firm to enhance its food production capabilities and increase its distribution radius.

J.G. Petrucci is working closely with Chan and Chan (USA) Inc. to design a facility that will accommodate the company’s current real estate need and strategically plan for its future growth.

“Chan and Chan USA is one of the many food manufacturing and distribution firms that are taking advantage of the fantastic resources the Lehigh Valley provides,” said Jim Petrucci, founder and president of J.G. Petrucci Co., Inc. “This new central location will allow them to access nearly 40 percent of the United States population within a day’s drive.”

Chan and Chan USA will revitalize two vacant buildings located at 2320 Avenue A in Bethlehem.

A representative from Chan & Chan said the new operation would create approximately 75 new jobs upon completion.

Cerminara Architect completed the facility designs. Bradley Christi, Emerald Realty represented Chan and Chan USA in this transaction.
