A map shows the future expanded footprint of Eastman headquarters.

Eastman Machine Co., has announced a building purchase and anticipates expansion of its headquarters in Buffalo, N.Y. on the company purchased the property located at 707 Washington Street and will now occupy the entire city block between Washington and Ellicott streets, south of Goodell Street and north of E. Tupper Street.

The neighboring building is 12,589 square feet and, once renovated, will serve as a demonstration center for Eastman’s cutting technology and solutions. “This acquisition is an innate step forward for Eastman,” says Robert Stevenson, fourth-generation CEO. “We need the room to continue giving our customers and prospects individualized attention.”

The acquisition deal comes shortly after Eastman Machine initiated a 5,000-square-foot expansion of its headquarters with the Erie County Industrial Development Agency (ECIDA). The expanded facility will provide the capacity needed for the company to accommodate the accelerated development and scope of its work, according to the company, which expects to break ground with the proposed $1.66 million project later this year.

“Expanding the Eastman headquarters is just another example of our commitment to providing well-crafted cutting solutions and to American manufacturing,” adds Stevenson.
