By |  September 30, 2019

Cleveland VibratorCleveland Vibrator Co. began 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 CEO Craig Macklin.

Established in 1923, Cleveland Vibrating Co. has been operating at its current location since 1953. The company will move into a space previously occupied by Watt Printing Co., and the new facility has a 54,000-sq.-ft. capacity with a 6,000-sq.-ft. mezzanine. The company plans to occupy 37,000 sq. ft. and lease out the remaining space.

“Relocation of headquarters’ personnel and equipment should be complete by the first of the year,” Macklin says. “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.”

According to Macklin, the company will invest in the new space and foresees the need to add employees once the move is finalized. In addition, the company has plans to improve truck dock space; install overhead cranes, paint booths and a weld fume exhaust system; rework electric power distribution; add new machining equipment; and renovate the office and production areas.

“This is more than a move for us,” Macklin says. “This is a transformation of our facility and a major event in a new phase of the company’s growth and history.”

Cleveland Vibrating Co. offers industrial vibration solutions for a host of industries, including aggregate, mining, agriculture, pharmaceutical, food, medical, powders, foundry, recycling and more.
