Steele Solutions Inc. recently completed construction of a 35,000-square-foot plant addition in Franklin that has significantly boosted its capacity to manufacture mezzanines and other steel structures for use in distribution centers, warehouses, factories and other commercial and military settings throughout the world.
“We’re now able to do more, for more customers in more markets,” said Kevin O’Neill, vice president for sales and marketing at Steele Solutions.
With the addition, Steele Solutions now has nearly 80,000 square feet of plant and office space at 9909 S. 57th St.
The expansion will result in the company adding at least 30 new jobs at the plant, O’Neill said.
“We increased our capacity 60 to 70 percent,” O’Neill said. “The addition also allowed us to streamline the flow of operations, upgrade equipment, and add a powder paint line.”
