Hobart Brothers Co. is expanding its manufacturing operations, increasing production capacity for its welding products.
The company will expand into a new 65,000-square-foot facility located in Troy, OH.
“We continue to see increases in both domestic and international demand for welding consumables, and are pleased to be able to invest in this expansion to support our growth” says Grant Harvey, vice president and general manager.
The company anticipates an additional 40 people will be added to its workforce once the new plant is at capacity. Construction on the new building will be completed by spring 2009.
Other Hobart Brothers manufacturing facilities are located in Piqua, OH, and Woodstock, Ontario, Canada.
