Oatey Expands in Northeast Ohio
Oatey Co., a Cleveland-based manufacturer of plumbing products, recently announced the groundbreaking of its new headquarters. The 43,500 square foot building will be located at Emerald Corporate Park on the city’s West Side.
Oatey CEO, John McMillan, said that the new headquarters will aim to foster collaboration among the company’s associates and corporate staff. According to McMillan, Oatey wanted to remain headquartered in Cleveland but initially had difficulty finding a convenient building to buy or renovate. The new two-story building will allow the company to combine its headquarters staff from three locations at manufacturing facilities in Cleveland. Oatey expects the building to be completed next year.
The construction and expansion of Oatey’s new headquarters will have a positive impact on Northeast Ohio. The new location is designed by Cleveland-based architecture and design firm, Vocon, and will be constructed by Garfield Heights-based Donley’s Inc. The project is expected to create 80 new jobs and approximately $3.8 million in payroll.
