Feb 13 14
A former solar panel manufacturing facility near Pittsburgh International Airport will become the Post-Gazette's new printing plant and distribution and production center. The company has signed a lease with the Buncher Co. to occupy a 245,000-square-foot building in Clinton Commerce Park that was built for Flabeg. The facility will house the Post-Gazette's new printing equipment, which should be ready for use this summer; all production and distribution functions; and financing and information technology offices. The Post-Gazette, will soon be produced in one of the most advanced printing plants. The new building, located in Findlay, also will contain 30,000 square feet of office space as well as showers and a gym. About 175 employees will move into the plant. The new press equipment should start arriving in April, with the goal of having it ready in August. The new technology will deliver a better, more colorful product for readers and advertisers.
With the new space, the newspaper will be able to shut down its Downtown printing operation and consolidate all of its production operations under one roof. Editorial and advertising offices are expected to move out of the building next year. The plan is to keep them Downtown.
