Steel fabricators expand in York County

The steel-fabrication business is thriving in York County as two companies expand operations there, one from Dallastown and one from Maryland. 

Yoe Construction, the Dallastown-based company, is leasing space for a new steel fabrication shop at 775 Lombard Road in Windsor Township, York County. 

The 23,142 square-foot shop is an extension of the company’s existing shop at its Dallastown headquarters and expands the company’s in-house structural steel capabilities.

Yoe, which serves commercial and industrial clients, said in a press release that it plans to hire about 15 people to staff the new location.

“This expansion is the next important step in our ability to deliver the steel fabrication capabilities and the capacity our clients can count on for project success,” Yoe owner and president Butch Eberly said in a statement.

The Lombard Road shop was formerly used by a steel fabrication company called Formit Steel

Formit Steel was headed by Richard R. Massey II, who died in 2019.

Who’s from MarylandBaltimore Fabrication LLC, an affiliate of SteelFab, a steel fabricator based in Charlotte, North Carolina.

The Baltimore-based company purchased an existing steel fabrication shop at 101 Mundis Race Road in Manchester Township and a nearby concrete plant along Church Road.

The existing shop had been operated by Formit Metal Fabricators, another company once headed by Massey. It has been winding down.

Baltimore Fabrication purchased Formit’s building and other assets and hired Formit’s 18 employees, according to Scott Foreman, co-founder and executive vice president at Baltimore Fabrication.

The sale price for the property was $3.8 million, according to county deed records.

Baltimore Fabrication paid $2 million for the former concrete plant, which had been owned by a subsidiary of building products company Oldcastle APG, according to county deed records.

Baltimore Fabrication plans to demolish the concrete plant and erect a 40,000 square-foot shop, Foreman said. The company eventually hopes to field two shifts of 30 workers each at both of its York-area plants, he said.

“We’re really excited about the expansion into York,” added Foreman, who said the company needed additional capacity beyond its Baltimore plant. “There’s a lot of work out there.”
