Steel supplier to set up shop in New Boston
(2007-12-11)
(WOUB) - An Atlanta-based steel supplier has chosen a former steel mill site in Scioto County for a distribution center.

Infra-Metals Company is expected to lay out more of its plans and a timetable for construction today.

New Boston village administrator and development director Michael Sturgill says the $13 million project will include a 250,000 square-foot facility to inventory, process and distribute steel products.

He says starting pay for the approximately 65 jobs that will be created would be about $40,000 a year.

The steel industry in New Boston dates to the start of the 19th century. The town was a major producer of weaponry for the Army during World War II.
