Swagelok Company is marking its 75th year in business by expanding its workforce on Cleveland’s west side through the addition of positions in its existing Strongsville facility and the purchase of an existing, 135,000-square-foot building in Valley City, Ohio.
Swagelok’s new facility, located at 5370 Wegman Drive in Valley City, Ohio, will become the company’s second location on Cleveland’s west side and its 21st facility in Northeast Ohio.
“Over the past several years, Swagelok has seen historically high levels of demand for the company’s high-quality products," said Ward Dumm, Swagelok SVP of Operations. "We are proud to be a growing manufacturer.”
When operational in 2023, the Valley City facility plans to welcome more than 125 permanent employees working in support of fitting service and high-purity products.
“Swagelok is one of the largest employers of manufacturing talent in Northeast Ohio," said Hannah Delis, Swagelok’s VP of Global Human Resources. "With that position comes a responsibility to our employees that we take very seriously. Driven by our values, we provide health benefits on the first day of employment, a generous retirement package, an Employee Stock Ownership Program that allows all employees to share in the company’s success, tuition assistance, on-the-job training, and a welcoming, clean, safe, and modern workspace. We are excited to continue to add to our team."
Over the next 18 months, Swagelok is hiring up to 75 associates at its Strongsville facility, many of which are new positions. The 154,000-square-foot facility has the capacity for 360 employees and manufactures more than 2,000 different products in support of the oil, gas, chemical, semiconductor, and clean energy industries.
Swagelok’s commitment to the Strongsville community began with the purchase of the facility in 2007.
“Swagelok is a valued member of the Strongsville community. We appreciate their significant investment within our city, and we look forward to future collaboration as Swagelok continues to create new, high-quality jobs within Strongsville for area residents," said Thomas Perciak, City of Strongsville Mayor.
