Ohio Valley Manufacturing Announces Facility Expansion

The Ohio Valley Manufacturing team is excited to announce that we are expanding our corporate sector to better accommodate and serve our growing customer base. In addition to improving our overall capabilities, the upcoming expansion will help us to produce, store, and ship the increased production output.

Equipment Additions

Our 30,000 square foot expansion, which significantly increases our press capacity and coil storage space, will include the addition of a new piece of equipment and production system, including:

  • A 1500 ton banking press with a 132 x 84 inch bed size
  • A 19-roll leveling feed line capable of blanking .250 gauge x 62 inch wide material

Working with Our Team

Specializing in heavy gauge stamping and precision blanking, our team at Ohio Valley Manufacturing has focused on delivering high quality manufacturing services since 1999. Offering tool & die design and manufacturing, robotic welding, and roller leveling, our staff calls upon their decades of experience across diverse manufacturing disciplines to provide solutions to some of the toughest application challenges.

It is this team-wide commitment to our customers that has helped us become one of the top Tier 2 suppliers in the U.S., an impressive achievement considering the industries we serve most frequently — including suspension parts, appliances, recreational vehicles and trucks, and agricultural equipment — are some of the most challenging to break into.

These facility updates and upgrades reflect the burgeoning growth of our business, and we’re excited to take the next step forward in offering our customers world-class manufacturing services.

The new OVM site provides greater detail about our equipment to give you a fuller picture of our facility’s comprehensive capabilities and offerings.

Ohio Valley Manufacturing Receives “Best of the United States” 2016 Business Award

Recently, US Business Executive, a business trade journal, rounded up a list of companies around the country that exemplified industry innovation and a commitment to their employees. 19 companies were eventually selected from the pool of hundreds, and Ohio Valley Manufacturing is proud to be among the few that made the final cut.

US Business Executive Award

Best of US Business Award

According to US Business Executive, Ohio Valley Manufacturing’s “strong grasp on emerging technologies, attention to detail and efficient friendly service,” set us apart from other companies. As a family owned business, we are committed to continuing the legacy of our founders through the generations, and are pleased to see the recognition from this well-respected trade publication.

While most of the 19 “Best of the United States” winners were related to food production this year, Ohio Valley Manufacturing stands out as an industrial company focused on heavy gauge blanking and stamping. Not only does this speak to our distinct strengths as a business, it also provides greater visibility for the manufacturing sector overall.

Diversifying Our Customer Base and Adding New Capabilities in 2017

As 2016 came to a close, Ohio Valley Manufacturing held our annual State of the Company address. It was an exciting and productive year for us, and provided the foundation for a great start to 2017. Here are some highlights of our recent accomplishments:

  • We’ve expanded our customer base. Our sales and marketing efforts have paid off, resulting in new long-term production opportunities with 6 different customers, 3 of which are completely new companies that we’ve added to our roster. And it seems that business is growing for our customers as well, since those 6 companies make up 8 different “ship to” locations – meaning that they have either expanded or are able to maintain multiple facilities. This is definitely a good sign overall.
  • 2016 was also a strong year for our plant assist and short term production services, as we partnered with 10 different companies on those types of jobs.
  • We already mentioned that our sales and marketing teams have done a phenomenal job in the past year, but to put it into perspective, 2016 was a record sales year for Ohio Valley Mfg. Once all of the accounting is complete, we expect to have hit more than $50 million in sales revenue!
  • All of this work and success means that we can budget for improvements to further enhance our capabilities. As such, we recently added a 1,500 ton Danly Stamping Press to our operations. This investment will allow us to take on even more new orders to assist our growing customer base.

Overall, the trends that we’re seeing at Ohio Valley Mfg. and among our customers reflects the overall state of manufacturing in the U.S. The current economic forecast predicts a period of mild growth in production and job gains. And while we’ve enjoyed impressive growth in 2016, reports point to an even more successful run in 2017. Here’s hoping!
