Paulo begins expansion in Cleveland

Paulo’s Cleveland division is growing. Recently demolition of a neighboring building was completed to kick off the expansion project. The two phase expansion project will add 50,000 ft² when completed. Phase one, 30,000 ft², will be complete in the Fall of 2018 and connect to the existing structure. Once the expansion is completed total floor space will be over 200,000 ft².

The Cleveland plant has over 100 employees and is the largest commercial vacuum heat treat in the United States. The expansion will allow for the installation of more vacuum heat treatment furnaces and allow for optimized flow of work through the facility. The Cleveland plant primarily serves the Aerospace, Power Generation, and Agriculture industries and specializes in precise high temperature vacuum heat treatment and brazing of nickel based superalloys.
