Manufacturing is alive and well in West Chester where the business-friendly climate and access to customers sets the stage for success.


Star Manufacturing made its start in West Chester and with each company advancement has continued to set roots deeper in West Chester. In this most recent investment in the community, Star Manufacturing plants its corporate headquarters and opens the door to even further growth by purchasing property.


Star Manufacturing is a systems integrator, providing complete design services on the electrical side of manufacturing for every application in the country. 


Star Manufacturing started its business at 9818 Princeton Glendale Road in February 2009 in the midst of a recession; and has expanded in the same location five times—currently leasing approximately 25,000 square feet.


Star Manufacturing delivers its electrical engineering services, programming, robotics, CAD and more to a multitude of industries including: food and beverage, wastewater treatment, automotive, steel, aluminum, paper and pulp, pharmaceuticals, medical, aerospace, military, amusement parks, conveyors and material handling, software companies, and machine builders.  The company has expanded its capabilities now to offer full mechanical design services for small-to-medium size systems, including building machines for road safety salt trucks  across the United States. 


Business has been good at Star Manufacturing and they have again outgrown their facility, dictating the company’s purchase of an additional 26,000 square-foot building at 10179 Commerce Park Drive.  The new location will become Star Manufacturing’s corporate headquarters when build out is complete late third quarter of this year.  The new location enables the company the opportunity to expand as much as two to three more times due to its available four acres of  land in West Chester.


“In today’s climate and the early struggles as Star was trying to find its way, we all feel so blessed to purchase our own building with tremendous potential to expand even more. We did not want to leave West Chester, as Star Manufacturing was started here and it’s where we plan on making our mark. We are an extremely aggressive company and building a fabulous resume over 12 years now and we are getting new customers every week,” said Mario Listo, President and Owner of Star Manufacturing.
