DuBois, Pa – Gasbarre Products, Inc. (Gasbarre) is pleased to announce that at the end of 2019 all Thermal Processing Systems will be manufactured in its 50,000 sq. ft. facility located in St. Mary’s, Pennsylvania.

Ben Gasbarre stated, “The move will allow us to better utilize our highly-skilled personnel to accelerate advancements to our products, technology and services.”
Expansion in St. Mary’s will be necessary, so plans have begun for an additional 12,000 sq. ft. of manufacturing space with additional office and conference room capacity. This will be a significant investment in the furnace operations to drive manufacturing, technology and growth into the future.
