Keene Building Products has acquired a new facility in Euclid, Ohio. The industrial complex’s 11 acres provides room for Keene to create a new laboratory for research and development along with a prototype production line for small filament products.

The acreage allows room for expansion and the creation of a rail spur to manufacture products in one location. Future plans include a new 40,000 square foot manufacturing facility.

The manufacturing for Keene will be moved in over the next 18 months. Additionally, an application lab will incorporate all of the products in the Keene family of companies including epoxy coatings from Cansto Coatings, cement and gypsum materials from Dependable..

“I grew up close to this area and my family has a long history in Euclid,” said Jim Keene. “This is an opportunity to revitalize a small portion of this nice community. We selected Euclid because of its proximity to transportation lines and its local support for industry.”
