Posted: Updated:

CHAMPION TOWNSHIP, Ohio - It's official. A Trumbull County business will expand and add up to 30 jobs.

Ohio Star Forge CEO Billy Orbach formally announced at the township trustees meeting Monday night that the company will invest $20 million in a 33,000 square foot building on site.

Orbach says the market and location were factors.

"The manpower's here, the equipment's here, the business is here in the United States," he says.

Trustee Jeffrey Hovanic says the company has been a good employer.

"Ohio Star Forge has been a good neighbor and a good friend in Champion Township," he says.

The new jobs will be entry level positions.

An additional machine will allow the company to enter a larger automotive market and continue to supply the oil and gas, industrial and off highway markets.
