O’Neal Manufacturing Services Opens Northern Kentucky Plant
O’Neal Manufacturing Services has acquired an 84,000-square-foot custom steel fabrication center in Burlington, Kentucky for the production of light gauge metal weldments for customers engaged in security and government, transportation, banking, medical, refrigeration, and HVAC.
The Burlington plant features a Salvagnini flexible shearing, punching, and forming cell, seven manual and two robotic welding stations, a state-of-the-art powder coat line, a pemming station, and kitting and assembly capabilities for original equipment manufacturers requiring light gauge, precision metal fabrication solutions.
“The addition of OMS-Northern Kentucky and its skilled team members will not only increase our company’s footprint in the region, but it will give OMS access to new types of fabricated steel businesses,” OMS President and CEO Kent Brown said. “We have already invested in new processing equipment for this facility, and look forward to using the size, experience, and reach of our organization to help OMS-Northern Kentucky grow.”
The addition of the Northern Kentucky fabrication facility brings the company’s total North American locations to ten, including their corporate headquarters in Birmingham, AL.
