The staff at
S & K Steel Inc
. is doubling as the company adds 9,200 square feet of space and installs new equipment to turn out more railroad supplies from its original, and soon to be newest, Madison Heights facilities.
With more than $300,000 in investment in equipment and employees growing from seven to 14 the new building will be used for product development and warehouse space and keep up with increased demand for its clamps, bars, fasteners and many other accessories that keep trains rolling the rails.
S & K Steel Inc. President Myles Paisley says in a statement that "this new expansion and the recent new hires will enable us to successfully meet the rapidly growing demand for our products and to better serve our customers."
The company's growth is another example of manufacturing in Michigan being alive and well.
"It is truly amazing to think we have outgrown our Madison Heights building since we started the company in 1996," he says.
