Worthington Industries Subsidiary, Westerman, Plans $3.5 Million Expansion In Fairfield County, Ohio
Westerman is the largest and oldest supplier of oil and gas separators, production units and related wellhead equipment east of the Mississippi River, Fairfield County Economic Development reported.
Founded in Bremen, Ohio, Westerman has had a presence in the Columbus Region since 1909. A manufacturer of storage tanks, containment cylinders, separation tanks and industrial pressure vessels for global energy, marine and industrial end markets, the company was acquired by Worthington Industries’ Pressure Cylinders segment in 2012.
“The increased drilling of Marcellus and Utica shale in Ohio and the region has fueled this expansion in our energy operations,” said Director of Energy Operations for Worthington’s Pressure Cylinders Segment, Gary Rano. “We are pleased to upgrade the facility and add to the workforce at Westerman’s founding location in Fairfield County and the Columbus Region.”
“Westerman has positively impacted Fairfield County’s economy through the services and job opportunities it has provided for many years,” said Dave Levacy, Fairfield County Commissioner in the Fairfield Economic Development newsletter. “We are pleased that Westerman continues to find Fairfield County conducive for its business needs.”
“It’s encouraging to see the Westerman’s job growth and facility expansion in Bremen, which is a testament to the company’s success in the Region,” said Josh Groce, mayor, Bremen. “We thank Westerman for its support of the community, and look forward to the company’s continued growth.”
