YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio –The industrial economy is in expansion mode. Even the smallest manufacturers in the Mahoning Valley are determined to maintain their competitive edges by acquiring new equipment and recruiting some of the best in the workforce to help their businesses grow.
“2015 will certainly be our best year to date,” says Steve Kiraly, president of Kiraly Tool & Die. “Each year that we’ve been in business, we’ve increased our sales anywhere from 5% to 10%.”
Kiraly Tool & Die manufactures stamping dies for several industries, and its president is a founding member of the Mahoning Valley Manufacturers Coalition. The coalition is an organized effort to re-brand the manufacturing sector and recruit a vibrant young workforce to its ranks.
