Central Machinery Company, DBA CenMac Metalworks, plans to expand its facility in Marion, Ohio. The company expects to create 55 jobs.

The manufacturing company that performs laser cutting, CNC machining, robotic and manual welding, stamping and plasma cutting will undertake a 30,000-square-foot expansion of its existing facility on 1339 E Fairground Road to accommodate the company’s 25 percent year-over-year growth. CenMac Metalworks will invest more than $8.6 million for the expansion, including $4.9 million for building costs, $3.5 million for monitoring and evaluation and $265,000 for training.

“The strong workforce in Marion and in the Columbus Region as a whole has helped fuel our company’s ongoing growth,” said Rod Galbreath, President, CenMac Metalworks. “This investment will enable us to upgrade our capabilities and provide the much needed expansion for this phase of our growth.”

“CenMac has received great support from many Marion-area resources, including the Marion County Regional Planning Commission, Marion CAN DO!, Marion County Job and Family Services, Columbus 2020 and our consultants, Mayflower Capital Group. We are proud to call Marion home for nearly 60 years,” said Galbreath.

“We are happy and excited to help facilitate CenMac Metalworks’ ongoing growth in Marion,” said Mayor Scott Schertzer. “The company’s decision to stay and expand here further establishes the Region as a manufacturing leader and highlights the strength of our skilled workforce.”
