Stürtz Announces Plans to Relocate to New Facility
May 13, 2009
Stürtz Machinery has finalized plans to relocate from Solon,
Ohio, to a new facility in Twinsburg, Ohio. According to the company's
announcement, the new facility has a larger manufacturing plant
floor and overhead crane capacity compared to the previous location.
12 years of working out of the same facility it's going to be a
big change for us," says Ellis Dillen, Stürtz vice president,
"but we have been looking for almost two years and finally
found what will prove to be a more suitable location for our operation.
The original plant was a renovated commercial and warehouse facility
that was modified to fit our needs as much as we could. The new
facility was originally built as a manufacturing facility. It also
offers easier access to I-480 and the Ohio Turnpike than the Solon
The Solon Stürtz facility was part of a multi-tenant commercial
and warehouse property; the new location was built as a standalone
manufacturing facility. It offers approximately the same square
footage but with a wide open 21,000 square foot shop floor. The
two main bays are each serviced by an overhead crane and, according
to the company announcement, two recessed loading docks will make
shipping and receiving more efficient during the busy months.
Plans for the move are progressing and the scheduled move is at
the end of June to allow the company time to settle in prior to
the traditional fall increase in business.
"This summer move should be the least disruptive to our production
and to the needs of our customers," says Dillen.
