Quality Steel Corporation will invest roughly $13.9 million to add 40,000 square feet to their currently 72,000-square-foot building as part of an expansion at its facility in Fremont, Ohio.
“Quality Steel Corp has experienced significant sales growth throughout the country, including our markets served by our Fremont facility. A result of this sales growth has been a substantial increase in the employment levels at our Fremont location along with an additional shift of production,” stated Dave Kubacki, Corporate Director of Human Resources Operations at LT Corporation. “With increased employment levels, we recognized a great opportunity to update our existing facility with additional parking, dining, locker rooms, offices, and training facilities.”
According to the Regional Growth Partnership, the company broke ground in October with a targeted completion date of July 2021. Additional investments included equipment and utility upgrades. Quality Steel’s expansion is being assisted with a $75,000 grant from JobsOhio.
“Quality Steel’s Fremont facility has a trained and motivated workforce which served as a critical differentiator for its continued growth in Ohio,” said Dean Monske, president and CEO of the Regional Growth Partnership. “Along with our partners at JobsOhio, Sandusky County and Fremont, we look forward to working with Quality Steel as it expands its operations in Northwest Ohio.”
Quality Steel Corporation manufactures and delivers aboveground and underground propane, ammonia, and dispenser tanks and pressure vessels for residential, commercial, small industrial, and agricultural use.
“Our economic team has worked hard to gain momentum in the community and enhance its focus throughout the county by putting an emphasis on business retention and expansion of existing companies in our communities,” stated Beth Hannam, Executive Director of the Sandusky County Economic Development Corporation. “Even in the face of a pandemic, Fremont and Sandusky County continues to see companies coming in and growing. I think that really says something about the business climate of our region.”
