“This expansion project represents a measure of confidence in our talented employees, the continued success of our customer partners, and growth of our business and to this region in continuing to lead advanced manufacturing on a global scale,” said Eric Oberg, chairman of the board for Oberg Industries.
W.K. Thomas from Butler, Pa., has been selected to be the contractor for this new building. The building expansion will give Oberg more than 80,000 square feet of additional floor space to expand its manufacturing operations and new product development efforts.
“The new building will give us room to expand for future growth as well as do more cellular manufacturing to increase efficiency,” said David Bonvenuto, Oberg’s president and CEO. “This will allow the company to be more flexible on its manufacturing floor, handle larger projects, and be more cost competitive in addition to adding physical space to increase our employee development training areas.”
The facility is expected to open in the spring of 2016. The company currently is recruiting personnel for several open manufacturing positions needed to support this capacity expansion.
Headquartered just north of Pittsburgh, Pa., Oberg Industries is a contract manufacturing firm for companies in the aerospace, automotive, consumer/industrial products, defense, energy, construction and housing, medical device, metal packaging, and munitions markets. The company’s global manufacturing footprint includes operations in Pennsylvania and Costa Rica.
