DIS-TRAN Steel Expands with Manufacturing Facility in Ohio

DIS-TRAN Steel, one  of the country’s leading steel pole manufacturers, announced today it will  expand operations to Fayette County, Ohio and open a new steel plant. The  Louisiana-based company will move into an existing facility in Washington  Court House, Ohio and produce tapered tubular steel poles for the electric  utility industry.
The  expansion provides the space and manpower needed for DIS-TRAN Steel to better  serve its customers in the Ohio Valley, Northeast and Upper Midwest parts of  the United States. Over the next five years, DIS-TRAN Steel plans to hire 200  new team members to provide high performance products for its customers  unique and ever-changing needs.
“We’ve  monitored the market for a long time. There is a strong demand for steel to  maintain and expand the electrical grid and Ohio is strategically the best  location for DIS-TRAN Steel to grow not just our products and services, but  also our team,” says Donnie Roberts, PE, President of DIS-TRAN Steel.
The facility, located at 1629 Old US 35 South East, Washington Court House, OH,  will give DIS-TRAN Steel an additional 58,000 square feet of space on a  25-acre lot. Jarrod Gemar, VP of Business Operations for DIS-TRAN Steel says  the company will reach full production capability within the first few months  of 2021.
“This  expansion is intended to build the foundation for the future of our company,  and we see this growth as vital to supporting our customers in the  development of America’s utility infrastructure.  We chose Washington Courthouse because we  thought that this community best shared our values and culture, as well as,  provided the skilled workforce necessary to support our growth plans.  We look forward to working together with  local businesses and officials to provide significant opportunities for local  workers and set the stage for future growth.” says Gemar.
DIS-TRAN  Steel is excited about the expansion and the potential it brings to the  community and surrounding areas.

“The  Fayette County Commissioners are grateful to DIS-TRAN Steel for the large  investment and quality new jobs this project brings. Working with the City of Washington Court  House, we are pleased to support such an important project and welcome the  business to our community,” says Dan Dean, Chairman of Fayette County Board  of Commissioners.
“We  are thrilled to welcome DIS-TRAN Steel to Ohio. Their Washington Court House  operations will allow them to leverage the Dayton Region’s talented, skilled  workforce to provide critical energy infrastructure. The DDC, JobsOhio, the  Ohio Development Services Agency, the City of Washington Court House and  Fayette County will continue support DIS-TRAN as they establish their  operations in Ohio,” say Julie Sullivan, Executive Vice President for  Regional Development.
The  company is looking to hire 40-50 immediate new team members and will host a  Job Fair October 20th and 21st. Candidates interested in registering for the  Job Fair can do so at https://web.distran.com/job-fair-registration.
