Toolmaker SGS Tool Co., Munroe Falls, Ohio, has completed and held a grand opening of its new 76,000 sq. ft. endmill facility in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio. The new plant was constructed next to the company's existing manufacturing facilities and creates increased toolmaking capacity.
The new facility includes a two-story office building as well as a climate-controlled manufacturing facility where over 8,000 endmills are produced per day, according to the company. This climate control enables precision machining and greater production consistency.
A ribbon-cutting ceremony was held May 19. Representatives from the architectural design and construction teams, municipal authorities, business group leaders and SGS Tool Co. leadership were in attendance.
