ERLANGER, KY. - International Mold Steel Inc. will increase its production and office space more than fivefold with its new $2 million facility in Ellsmere, Ky. Groundbreaking is set for September, a company official said Aug. 2.
Not only will production space increase to 25,000 square feet, but Vice President Tom Schade said the company will be adding machining and tooling capability to ``take the weight off the customer for squaring the blocks'' of mold-making steel.
Schade said eight to 10 employees will be added to the 14 now employed for the company's two shifts.
Construction bond funding for the Ellsmere plant came from Kenton County.
The company's new location will be only a few miles from its current office in Erlanger. Both are Kentucky suburbs of Cincinnati.
Also, the company named Raymond J. Monahan sales engineer in North and South Carolina. Monahan, a former Rhode Island state senator, specialized in metals, surface treatments, coatings and services used to produce plastic and rubber products, while he was in the plastics industry in New England and upstate New York.
