Pennex Aluminum Expands in Columbiana County
Pennex Aluminum Company recently announced its plans to expand its Leetonia, Ohio facility in Columbiana County. The $38 million project will create 65 jobs and retain another 67. The expansion was necessary to install a new, state-of-the-art 12-inch precision aluminum extrusion press. The project will almost triple the size of the company’s current facility and is the largest expansion in the company’s history.
“This investment in the Leetonia community represents the continued comeback and expansion of American manufacturing right here in Ohio,” says Lt. Gov. Mary Taylor. “This investment in the community and job creation is yet another example that the economic turnaround is happening and Ohio is helping lead the way.”
The Pennex facility in Leetonia creates highly specialized parts for major automotive manufacturers and other transportation related companies.
