US commercial vehicle component manufacturer, Stemco, has completed construction on a new advanced lab in Ohio, built to design and test advances in materials, designs and technology for commercial vehicle air springs.
The 20,000-square-foot (1,858m2) facility in Fairlawn Corporate Park was built in response to Stemco’s acquisition of the air springs business from former Veyance Technologies.
“On behalf of Stemco, I am extremely pleased to see the completion of this new facility,” said David Brinkman, Segment Business Leader, air springs for Stemco.
“Following the purchase of the Goodyear Air Springs business, we were intent on keeping the business in Fairlawn, retaining the workforce and investing where necessary to support our long-term growth.
“The new facility features state-of-the-art test equipment for a talented group of engineers that will serve our production facilities and our customers well in the future.”
