Swagelok’s new, state-of-the-art, 124,000-square-foot facility
Local and state officials recently joined the executive leadership of Swagelok Company for a ribbon cutting ceremony celebrating the completion of the company’s global headquarters and innovation center in northeast Ohio. The event included remarks by Swagelok Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Thomas F. Lozick; Cathey Lozick, daughter of Swagelok founder Fred Lennon; and Edward H. Kraus, mayor of Solon. Thomas Lozick and Kraus were joined by Swagelok President and Chief Operating Officer I. James Cavoli and Glenn Richardson, managing director for advanced manufacturing and aerospace, JobsOhio, for the official ribbon cutting.
Swagelok’s new, state-of-the-art, 124,000-square-foot facility includes an innovation laboratory and the Edward A. Lozick Customer Collaboration Center and is directly connected to the company’s main plant. The building also includes areas that honor the company’s nearly 75 years in manufacturing. In conjunction with the global headquarters, the main plant was renovated, including a makerspace that encourages Swagelok associates to "bring their creativity to the workplace."
During his remarks, Thomas Lozick thanked the city of Solon, JobsOhio and Team NEO for their support, “Today, Swagelok employs almost 5,700 associates worldwide with more than 4,400 associates calling the state of Ohio home. Our growth would not be possible without public officials who see the value in partnering with businesses and who seek to continuously understand what businesses need — not just to compete, but to grow — in today’s global marketplace.”
