Groundbreaking Held For Marmon/Keystone
A groundbreaking ceremony for the new Marmon/Keystone building was held on Tuesday in the Fulton County Business Park. The 43,000 square-foot building, built by Palmer Construction Co., will be the new home of the pipe and tubing cutting business that had been located within the Fulton Precision business in the Ayr Township business park. The new building will be located behind the Community State Bank and Tri-State Community Health Center just off Secrist Springs Drive. The company, with corporate offices in Butler, Pa., is a leading wholesale distributor of tubular products for over 100 years and inventories more than 15,000 sizes and grades of carbon, alloy, stainless and aluminum tubular and bar products. Locally the company cuts metal largely for JLG Industries. Guest speakers at Tuesday’s ceremonies included David A. Washabaugh IV, president, Fulton Industrial Development Association,
