Ohio State Senator Michael Rulli (R-Salem) praised the announcement that CeramFab, Inc. will add jobs to the area Monday.

CeramFab will be adding 45 jobs to their manufacturing facilities in East Palestine soon according to the release.

The company manufactures ceramic fiber materials and refractory brick for the steel aluminum, foundry and other industries.

The new jobs are made possible due to their strategic plan to onshore production of high demand products.

JobsOhio, Team NEO and Columbiana County are assisting CeramFab in completing the installation of production lines.

"Good paying manufacturing jobs are the lifeblood of northeast Ohio, and I am proud of the work JobsOhio and companies like CeramFab, Inc. are doing to revitalize manufacturing in our communities," said Rulli.
