At the company's present location, "there is nowhere to go," said Jenine Ottobre, vice president of the company, which is a division of Cirrus Construction Co.
The company also has to pay rent at the Dover location.
The company bought six acres in Nova East Industrial Park in the southeast area of Massillon and plans to build a 17,000-square-foot facility.
"The city of Massillon offered a geographical advantage with location and land availability," Ottobre
said the bigger building will allow the company to expand fabrication services and provide additional warehouse space for support services.
The company employs 45 to 100 full-time union workers on construction jobs based on the season and another 20 full-time office personnel.
"We're not quite sure how many new jobs it will create right away," Ottobre
said the pay scale ranges from $12 to $30 an hour based on union provisions.
