Fig Industries buys Lancaster City building for new headquarters

Lenay Ruhl//February 14, 2017

The Lancaster-based publisher and brand design company has purchased a building at 103 South Duke St., and will move its headquarters there in April, a news release said.

Fig bought the 3,100 square-foot building for $412,250 in January. It is currently renovating the space, which includes tearing out walls and designing spaces.

Fig is doing most of the interior design work, and has asked for help from other Lancaster County companies such as Two Dudes Painting Co., Brandt Painting and Restoration, J&J Plumbing and Cooling, Peris Heating and Cooling and Jackson’s Window Shoppe Inc.

Marotta Main Architects previously owned the building. That firm moved to 214 N. Duke St.

Fig is currently leasing a space at 153 E King St., where it’s been for the past five years. It also has locations in West Chester, Kennett Square and Bethlehem, as well as in Columbia, S.C.

The move will give Fig about 50 percent more space, so that it has room to grow. Growth is anticipated over the next several years, according to Deborah Brandt, owner and creative director of Fig Industries.

Fig’s design work for outside companies has grown 25 percent since 2015, and it currently has 18 people on staff. Fig plans to hire two more people in 2017 and two in 2018.

“As the city of Lancaster grows and transforms, our business transforms with it,” Brandt said.
