The site of the former Knox Glass Plant will serve as the location of Clarion PA County’s newest business.
Modern Living Solutions, a fully integrated modular construction company offering expertise in the design, development and delivery of modular construction residential products, this week announced the strategic purchase of a 256,000 square foot industrial factory site on more than 40 acres of land in Knox.
“The site will be repurposed to execute the pre-construction and assembling of luxury modular bathrooms to fast-track the costly traditional construction sequences the industry has become accustomed to with outdated construction methods,” said Andy Mest, managing director of offsite construction for Modern Living Solutions. “The purchase marks Modern Living Solutions’ first investment in offsite manufacturing, providing Modern Living Solutions a competitive advantage within the residential housing industry.”
According to the Clarion County Register and Recorder Office, the land was purchased for $2.5 million on Oct. 27, by Fort Knox LLC. The property was purchased from Clarion Industrial Realty. Knox glass closed operations in 1983.
“Modern Living Solutions will create over 50 jobs in its first year of full operations, ultimately creating over 130 permanent jobs in total with future planned phases of expansion, positively impacting the local economy in Northwest Pennsylvania,” Mest said.
