Ohio Star Forge Breaks Ground on Expansion
Ohio Star Forge (OSF) recently broke ground on a previously announced $20 million expansion project at its Champion Township plant. The 33,000-square-foot expansion will make room for new equipment and production capacity, including a new Hatebur line that will double the company's output to 36,000 tons a year. OSF, an independent subsidiary of Japan's Daido Steel, manufactures bearing components for the automotive, off-highway, oil and gas, and industrial markets in the U.S. It expects to manufacture its one-billionth part this year.
