A public hearing on a revised proposal by AVOX Systems, which is seeking tax breaks on improvements at its village site, will be held during Tuesday’s meeting of the Lancaster Industrial Development Agency.

The meeting begins at 8:30 a.m. in Town Hall, 21 Central Ave.

The company makes oxygen and respiratory products and systems for the aerospace and defense industries at its site on Walter Winter Drive. It’s seeking exemptions from real property and sales taxes on proposed improvements.

The original proposal was to renovate 77,000 square feet of its building and add manufacturing and non-manufacturing equipment, at an estimated cost of $6.88 million. The proposal now includes the construction of an addition of more than 5,000 square feet, bringing the estimated cost up to $7.58 million.
