New building and location planned for family-owned local manufacturer
Online PR News – 17-February-2015 – Hudson, Ohio – Ramco Specialties, Inc. announces plans to build and move to a new 165,000 plus square foot facility in Hudson Industrial Business Park by the end of 2015. The new building will dramatically increase current production space and allow for future sales growth.
Founded in 1977, Ramco is a global supplier focusing on internally threaded fasteners and cold formed specials to the automotive and heavy truck industries. The company currently occupies three buildings in Hudson. Growth due to domestic manufacturing and newly developed engineered products is driving the need to move. The company states consolidating from three buildings to one will greatly improve efficiencies as the manufacturing operation expands and sales continue to grow.
“We have been at our current location since 1986 and have just reached our limit on Hudson Drive,” President Rick Malson, said. “My father always prided himself on keeping the business in Hudson. Our family is excited to carry on this tradition and deepen our roots in the community as the company grows.”
Ramco Specialties, Inc. was founded by the late Dick Malson 38 years ago from the back of a machine shop. Today, Ramco is a manufacturer / distributor of fasteners with global sales in excess of $80,000,000 headquartered in Hudson with locations in Italy and Sweden. The Hudson location employs more than 130 people with plans to add more employees over the next four years. “We are excited to be bringing manufacturing jobs back to Northeast Ohio and committed to continuing our history of support in the community,” Malson said.
