CHICAGO Ohio Star Forge
Co. will break ground May 14 on a $20-million expansion project
in Champion Township, Ohio.
The Warren, Ohio-based company,
a subsidiary of Nagoya, Japan-based Daido Steel Co. Ltd.,
recently acquired land for the 33,000-square-foot addition,
which will house a new production line with a high-speed
horizontal hot-former (
amm.com, April 3).
After ramping up the new line, the companys annual
forgings output will nearly double to between 70,000 and 71,000
tons from 36,000 tons currently.
