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.

"After 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 location."

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.
