Screen Machine Industries to double manufacturing capacity

Portable screening and crushing equipment manufacturer Screen Machine Industries will expand its 40,000-square-foot facility in Etna, Ohio, by 90,000 square feet, the company announced March 18. The expansion will allow Screen Machine Industries to double its manufacturing capacity by Jan. 1. “To keep up with demand, we’ve got to expand,” said Cynda Simmons, marketing director for Screen Machine Industries. “At this point, we can hardly keep things in stock.” The new facility will feature multiple high definition plasma burning tables, remote control overhead cranes and two painting facilities. The company also operates factories in Columbus, Ohio, and Clarksburg, West Virginia, with 40,000 square feet and 55,000 square feet, respectively.
