Restek Breaks Ground on 17,000 Square-Foot Wellness Center for Employees

Restek’s employee-owners ceremoniously broke ground on their new 17,000 square-foot Wellness Center, located on the company’s property in Penn Eagle Industrial Park in Bellefonte, PA.

The center, which the company plans to be using by April 2016, will offer employees and their families year-round recreation activities such as indoor soccer, basketball, yoga, and spinning.

Backed by the Restek Leadership Team, Wellness Center Committee, and founder Paul Silvis, Restek President Bryan Wolcott addresses the company.

Restek President Bryan Wolcott said focusing on the health and well-being of its employees is key to the company’s continued success.

“This project is not about a building—this is the beginning of a new era for Restek where we are able to increase our focus on health and wellness. By offering these benefits to employees and their families, we envision a greater energy, productivity, and quality of life,” Wolcott said.

In addition, the new facility will support the business by providing a large indoor space where employees can gather for company meetings and events, and it has also been designed to provide work space in the event of an emergency.

The facility is an extension of the wellness program created by Restek founder Paul Silvis in the late 1980s with nothing but a weight machine and punching bag. In 2004, Restek hired its first full-time wellness coordinator, and in 2005, the official Restek Wellness Program was introduced.
