BRYAN, Ohio - Altenloh, Brinck & Co. U.S., Inc., is pleased to announce a major expansion of its Bryan, Ohio, manufacturing facility. Already under way, the expansion will increase the size of the plant to over 200,000 square feet and will involve two phases. Initial occupancy is expected to take place on June 15, with a total completion date of Oct. 1, 2011.
“At 33,000 square feet, this is the largest expansion in the company’s 30-year history and represents a total investment (in plant and equipment) of $4 million,” he said. “This project, in conjunction with a fully-implemented 24-hour, seven-day-a-week production plan, will allow us to increase capacity over 30 percent with space remaining for our next growth opportunities.”
“From the manufacturing of our fasteners, the heat-treat process, and all the way through coating and packaging … we control 100 percent of the resource requirements here in northwest Ohio. The expansion will allow us to support our growing customer base, as well as anticipated growth in the commercial roofing market,” he said. “While we could easily go the way of the rest of the market and import fasteners from Asia, we do not believe this is what our industry demands nor what it deserves.”
