HARRISBURG – State Senator Bob Mensch (R-24) announced that Knoll Inc. will be expanding its operations in Pennsylvania. Knoll has taken a three-step relocation approach which began in 2020 and will continue through 2021. The relocation began with the textile team from East Greenville moving to a new facility in Quakertown, as well as the relocation of a manufacturing line from its Michigan facility to its East Greenville facility. In addition to this, they will also be relocating and expanding their Allentown location to a site close to the East Greenville location.
Since 1938, Knoll Inc. has been recognized internationally for creating workplace and residential furnishings. This project will generate at least 138 new jobs in the commonwealth.
Knoll received a funding proposal from the Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED) for a $425,000 Pennsylvania First grant, $276,000 in Job Creation Tax Credits to be distributed with the creation of new jobs, and $82,800 funding for job training. The company has also vowed to invest at least $6.8 million into the project as well as to create at least 138 jobs and retain an extra 920 jobs over the next three years.
“I am extremely pleased that Knoll Inc. has decided to continue its relocation into Montgomery County,” Mensch said. “With the creation and continuation of new jobs in the area, our communities can continue to grow and thrive.”
