NORTH CANTON, Ohio—Seco Machine, a manufacturer of cast urethane products, will move to a new, larger plant by the first quarter of 2019.
The move to a new, $8 million plant in Green, Ohio, is driven by customer demand and expectations of further growth, according to a company release. The new facility will have 120,000 square feet of manufacturing, distribution and office space, which is about 60 percent more than the 75,000-sq.-ft. facility that houses the company in North Canton.
The new facility will help the company capitalize on growth opportunities, said Tom Seccombe, Seco general manager.
Seco, a division of A. Stucki Co., is growing in both its cast urethane production line begun in 2010 and the metal machining and contract manufacturing work offered since its establishment in 1985, the company said. The segments are growing due to resurgence in the rail industry and expansion into new markets, including cars and trucks, industrial equipment, public services and others.
Campbell Construction Co. of Wooster, Ohio, is the general contractor for the new facility.
A. Stucki, based in Pittsburgh, is a manufacturer and supplier of railroad industry components and services.
