In 2010, RIDC was approached with a similar project when the Sony Corporation closed its Westmoreland manufacturing facility, leaving 2.8 million square feet of vacant space and displacing thousands of workers. RIDC has since rehabilitated the facility, now called RIDC Westmoreland, into a multi-tenant, high-growth manufacturing hub. The building has large utility capacity, direct railroad access and excellent connections to the state highway system. In 2016, Siemens Energy division signed a new long-term lease and has since constructed a 60,000 square-foot addition to their existing 230,000 square feet of space.
RIDC Westmoreland is also home to major manufacturing tenants: DNP IMS America, Cenveo and Aquion Energy. Westmoreland County Community College opened an Advanced Technology Center in the building,educating and training students and incumbent workers for the future of advanced manufacturing in our region.
