AMECO USA Metal Fabricating Solutions LLC, a Westlake, Ohio-based metal fabricator of engineered products, has opened a 50,000-square-foot manufacturing facility on the west side of Cleveland.
The new facility increases the company's total manufacturing space to 62,000 square feet. The total includes its sister company, ArcAlloy Metal Fabrication Solutions, which operates at an existing 12,000-square-foot facility in Elyria, Ohio.
The company employs 20 people at both facilities, including 11 employees for newly created positions at the Cleveland facility. AMECO said it plans to hire additional employees to support the growing operation.
"This new facility enables us to offer our customers integrated problem-solving through an expanded range of metalworking processes and welding technologies," said Mike Perkins, president and chief engineer. "Our in-house engineering team uses advanced 'SolidWorks' three-dimensional modeling software, which enables us to provide customers with tailored solutions that can add to long-term product performance, in some of the most challenging industrial applications."
The new Cleveland plant has 50-ton in-house lifting capacity, with over 30 feet under-the-hook, and oversized factory doors, enabling the company to fabricate and ship extra large components, according to AMECO USA.
The facility is located near two major interstates and in close proximity to Cleveland Hopkins International Airport and the Port of Cleveland, simplifying the shipment of products throughout North America, and around the world, according to the company.
AMECO USA manufactures metal components that are frequently used in industries such as power generation; pollution control; wastewater treatment; aerospace/defense; stay-cable and other unique bridge construction; chemical processing; and metal-producing facilities.
It also manufactures a line of nickel-alloy fabricated products, typically used in heat-treating operations.
