JM Equipment to Expand, Add Jobs

NEW CASTLE, Pa. — JM Equipment, a locally owned custom metal fabrication and machining company, is expanding its operations in Shenango Township.

The company, which has been in business since 2014 and currently operates in the Shenango Commerce Park, recently opened a second, larger building at 1902 Old Butler Road.

The expansion will increase capacities for its machining and fabrication projects and also provide additional space for the manufacturing of new equipment and rebuilding of existing machinery.

Owners Taylor and Jim McKenna plan to hire up to 10 new employees, from entry-level to experienced tradesmen for positions including welders, machinists, and mechanics, as well as general laborers.

“We have worked hard to establish our growing business and are excited to expand and grow locally, and remain here for generations to come”, Jim McKenna said.

Shenango Township Supervisor Frank Augustine said the expansion is welcome news to the township. “We’re so glad to have a local company with great growth potential. The township supervisors are here to support them in any way we can.”
