Cleveland Steel Container to Install New Coating Line

YOUNGSTOWN, OHIO – Cleveland Steel Container Corp. is moving forward with an expansion into its new location at 2750 Salt Springs Road, according to documents filed with the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency.

According to the Ohio EPA, the Hudson-based company has won a draft approval for the installation of a 1-gallon, roll coater paint line at the site. Under the terms of the permit, the company would need to install a regenerative thermal oxidizer to monitor and control volatile organic compound, or VOC, emissions from the new coating line.

The draft air permit to install and operate the equipment was approved April 23, according to Ohio EPA records. Under Ohio EPA rules, the project will not receive final approval until after a public comment period has passed or a public hearing is completed. Comments or a request for a public hearing will be accepted 30 days after a public notice is published.

In March, the Business Journal reported that Cleveland Steel Container purchased the Salt Springs Road building for $4.2 million. The building once housed the operations of Nannicola Corp., a gaming supply wholesaler.

The site includes 61,348 square feet of manufacturing and warehouse space, and another 12,000-square-foot warehouse along Corby Road.

Cleveland Steel, formed in 1963, manufactures steel pails mostly used by industrial customers, according to its website. The company has a plant in Niles and operates a technical center in Streetsboro. The company is governed under an employee stock ownership plan, or ESOP.

Over the past 30 years, Cleveland Steel has acquired manufacturing operations in California, Illinois, Ohio and Texas.
