Specialty materials manufacturer Alpha Associates announced last week it will add 20,000 square feet to its world headquarters in Lakewood. The new construction on its existing campus is expected to be complete by the end of 2013.
According to the announcement, the new facilities will include additional rubber processing equipment, a new laboratory and warehousing space. It will also include a solar energy system.
Alpha will now be comprised of two business divisions: Insulation Textiles and Facings, which will be managed by co-Chief Operating Officer John Baxter, and Engineered Elastomers, managed by co-COO Rob Antonius.
