Construction Begins on Univest's New Office
Building in Lehigh Valley
Elected officials from Lehigh County and South Whitehall Township joined Univest executives at a groundbreaking ceremony for the new office building, which is planned to open at the end of 2013.
Univest recently started construction of an approximately 10,000-square-foot office building in South Whitehall Township in Lehigh Valley. The new building will be located in the Tilghman Square Shopping Center at 4680 Broadway Road, Allentown.
Larken Associates is the general contractor working to build the facility by year end. Univest plans to relocate 31 employees into this new space, currently working out of offices in Allentown and Fogelsville, and specializing in delivering corporate banking, wealth management, equipment financing, mortgage banking, insurance, retirement plan services and municipal pension services. The building will have space for Univest to continue its expansion by adding up to 20 employees in the future.
"The groundbreaking is an opportunity for us to celebrate the start of a project that shows our commitment and long-term investment to deliver a diverse mix of financial solutions to individuals, businesses and nonprofit organizations in the Lehigh Valley," says William S. Aichele, chairman and CEO for Univest Corporation. "We have been building relationships, getting involved in the community and providing financial solutions in the Lehigh Valley since the fall of 2008; but this new facility will bring all of our Lehigh Valley-based employees together in one location and strengthen our presence in this growing community."
