ALLENTOWN, Penn. — After outgrowing its facility, RB Collections will move to a new 12,000-square-foot building, according to Mcall.com. The business is a dealership and restoration shop for classic cars.
The business will spend $2 million in restorations to get the building ready, noted the article. The site was previously occupied by A&B Meats. RB Collections will be adjacent to the America on Wheels museum.
Renovations include the construction of apartments on the second and third floors, a plan unanimously approved by the Allentown Commercial and Industrial Development Authority, stated the article. Co-owner Alex Ruozzi, who owns the business with his brother, Al, hopes development will begin in July or August.
“We couldn’t have asked for a better location,” said Alex Ruozzi in the article. “People will now be able to view beautifully restored vehicles at the museum and then see firsthand how those restorations happen at our facility.”
The new facility has space for 12 automobiles in the showroom and 15 in the restoration shop, reported the article. Renovations to the building could take 18 months to complete.
Four people are employed by the business, shared the article. With the new location the brothers expect to add that number, giving them 10 to 15 workers.
