Victaulic recently announced it the expansion of its Lawrenceville, Pennsylvania facility to increase its production capacity and meet the demands of its North American customer base. Headquartered in Easton, Pennsylvania, Victaulic’s $100 million expansion project will create 214 new full-time jobs, adding to the more than 1,600 employees already working across the Commonwealth. Worldwide, Victaulic employs more than 4,500 individuals.
