TimkenSteel starts $40 million 'quench-and-temper' project

10 June 2015

TimkenSteel has started building a $40 million “quench-and-temper” facility at its Gambrinus steel plant in Perry Township.

The advanced facility is expected to be fully operational next year.

It will heat-treat steel and have capacity for 50,000 process-tons annually of 4-inch to 13-inch bars and tubes as part of the Canton steel maker’s most sophisticated product lines.

The new project is going up near other existing quench-and-temper thermal treatment facilities at the Gambrinus plant. The project is being supported by Perry Township, Stark County and JobsOhio, with the Stark County Port Authority serving as a financing vehicle.
