Cleveland Vibrator Announces Expansion

Will relocate headquarters, manufacturing facility from Cleveland’s west side to south side

Cleveland Vibrator Company announced it has initiated the process of relocating the company’s headquarters and manufacturing operations from Cleveland’s near west side to a larger facility on the city’s south side, according to Craig Macklin, CEO.

“Relocation of headquarters’ personnel and equipment should be complete by the first of the year,” says Macklin. “We have seen our growth accelerate over the past eight years and we need a larger space to continue serving our customers at the highest level. We are very excited about moving to a larger space and more modern facility.”

Cleveland Vibrator, in business since 1923 and at its current location since 1953, is moving into a space previously occupied by Watt Printing Company at 4544 Hinckley Industrial Parkway. The new facility has a capacity of 54,000 square feet with a 6,000 square foot mezzanine. The company plans to occupy 37,000 square feet and lease out the remaining space.

The company offers industrial vibration solutions for a host of industries, including mining, agriculture, pharmaceutical, food, medical, powders, foundry, aggregate, recycling and more. Current headquarters and production operations are located in a 28,000 square foot building at 2828 Clinton Avenue in Cleveland.

According to Macklin, the company will be investing in the new space and foresees the need to add employees once the move is complete. Plans are to improve truck dock space, rework electric power distribution, install overhead cranes, paint booths and weld fume exhaust system, add new machining equipment and renovate the office and production areas.

“This is more than a move for us. This is a transformation of our facility and a major event in a new phase of the company’s growth and history,” says Macklin. “And, it would not be possible were it not for our tremendous team of employees and external partners.”

The company has partnered with the Manufacturing Advocacy and Growth Network (MAGNET) to guide the transformation and the overall move project, CBRE Realty and CBRE Construction Management, Brouse McDowell LPA, City Architecture and The Snavely Company. The company has received grant funding approval from the State of Ohio through JobsOhio and the Ohio Air Quality Development Authority. The City of Cleveland has also committed assistance to the project through the Vacant Property Initiative.
