Dempsey Uniform is a highly respected industry leader.
Allentown is named for William Allen, a gentleman who purchased the land in 1735 from three of William Penn’s sons. Allen was a former Mayor of Philadelphia, the Chief Justice of Pennsylvania Province at the time, and a wealthy merchant of some renown. Around 1740, after harvesting logs from the land, he built himself a hunting lodge. Twelve years later, he laid out a town he called Northampton. Although Allen’s original log lodge is no longer standing, period surveys have made it possible to pinpoint its location. His son James built a more extravagant home nearby called Trout Lodge, a building that still exists and has been designated as the oldest building in Allentown, circa 1770.
The Penn National Bank building, located downtown, was initially built in 1803 as a post office for Northampton Town, ending the need for residents to travel to Bethlehem for postal services. Years later, when Lehigh County was partitioned off of Northampton County in 1812, the town of Northampton was rechristened Allentown.
Infrastructure in the county developed soon afterward, beginning with the opening of the Lehigh Canal in 1827. The canal carried coal 47 miles downriver from the Mauch Chunk (now Jim Thorpe) region of the Lehigh Valley to Allentown, sparking the city’s shift toward becoming one of Pennsylvania’s most vital centers of industry and commerce.
In 1855, following the canal opening, the Lehigh and Susquehanna Railroads were established. Today, both entities are part of the Norfolk-Southern Railway, headquartered in Allentown. In the 1800s, when residents of America’s newly formed colonies were clamoring for building materials, bricks were the first freight to be shipped out of Allentown by railcar.
Iron ore was discovered in the region, and while Allentown never quite matched the production capacity of nearby Bethlehem, iron and later steel production proved to be significant economic factors for the city. Allentown Boiler Works, founded in 1883, produced iron kilns and boilers which were used throughout North America and as far away as Cuba and the Philippines.
As the economy has changed with the times, Allentown has changed with it. Industrial manufacturing has yielded to more technology-based businesses. In 1945, Western Electric opened a plant and, in 1951, it was the first company to produce transistors commercially. Currently, Air Products & Chemicals, PPL, and the Lehigh Valley Hospital are the major employers in the region.
Over the years, another major employer in Allentown – the downtown shopping district – gave way to suburban malls like the Lehigh Valley Mall, the South Mall, the Whitehall Mall, and the Promenade Shops at Saucon Valley. While the Greater Allentown area is a favorite shopping destination, the downtown district has evolved into more of a center-city campus comprised of government offices and corporate enterprises. Dempsey Uniform & Linen Supply works with a wide variety of retail, commercial, and industrial organizations in the Allentown area, providing high quality uniform rental services, linen rentals, and facility supplies.
