A Lebanon-based construction company has begun renovations and additions for an existing warehouse facility in Warren County that will house a Canadian-owned steel supplier later this year.

The Franklin facility is 69,000 square feet, and Bunnell Hill Construction President Kevin Scott said the additions being made for Allied Crawford Steel will total about 31,000 square feet. Scott said Bunnell Hill, a division of the Schueler Group, will be adding an outside steel crane system and bay area, as well as renovating the interior office completely.

Scott said the facility renovations are expected to be completed by Dec. 1, and that Allied Crawford Steel staff have been working on site along with the construction company. The facility is located at 213 Industrial Drive in Franklin.

The company received an $85,000 grant from JobsOhio for the project. The company plans to invest $3.6 million in its operation and create 50 jobs.

The newly installed crane system has three cranes that are each capable of lifting over 10 tons. The new cranes will allow for the movement and storage of steel beams at the facility.

Allied Crawford Steel is new to the Dayton region, Scott said. The steel supply company is the U.S. division of Ontario-based Crawford Metal Corporation. Allied Crawford Steel also operates facilities in South Carolina, Virginia and Georgia.

The steel supplier will be looking to hire employees for its new facility. Representatives from Allied Crawford Steel could not be reached for comment.
