Altitude Marketing opening new office in Emmaus

EMMAUS, Pa. - The last time WFMZ was at 225 Main Street in Emmaus, it was to bring you the news that Wentz Hardware was closing. 

But just seven months later we have better news - the opening of Altitude Marketing.

"We wanted to stay in Emmaus," said Gwen Shields, Altitude's chief operating officer.

Shields gave WFMZ a tour of the new digs just a mile away from their old office.

"My business partner and I are the two sides of the coin. So I saw all the potential and he saw the money pit," she said.

And $1.5 million later, the space has been totally transformed.

"It's an old building but it was structurally sound, has really good bones," Shields said.

And they kept a lot of those bones.

"When we did the demolition we found that it was actually the back porch of the original house," Shields said.

That is now a bathroom. They've brought in other modern luxuries.

"We also put in sit stand desks that people can customize the height," Shields said.

"The office space is allowing us to attract more and better employees. It's a tough job market right now," she said.
