Crys­tal Steel Fabri­ca­tors to open Eastern Shore plant

Baltimore Sun - - AROUND THE REGION - —Natalie Sher­man

A Delaware steel fab­ri­ca­tor said Wednes­day it plans to open a plant in Caro­line County, bring­ing on 126 peo­ple in the next two years. Crys­tal Steel Fabri­ca­tors, a fam­ily-owned busi­ness that started in 1992, pur­chased a for­mer ES Steel build­ing in Fed­er­als­burg last month for $1.3 mil­lion, ac­cord­ing to land records. The fa­cil­ity will be the com­pany’s first in Mary­land. It also has lo­ca­tions in Penn­syl­va­nia, Ten­nessee and the Philip­pines. The com­pany, which has worked on projects that in­clude the MGM Re­sort Casino at Na­tional Har­bor, ex­pects to in­vest more than $4 mil­lion in the plant, in­clud­ing $2 mil­lion in prop­erty ac­qui­si­tion and $2 mil­lion on equip­ment, ac­cord­ing to the Mary­land Depart­ment of Com­merce. The state pro­vided a $315,000 loan that can be waived if Crys­tal Steel makes those in­vest­ments and em­ploys at least 126 peo­ple full-time through 2021.
