Quote from Mayor Lovely Warren at the recent ribbon cutting for this facility.

City of Rochester Mayor Lovely Warren said, "As we work to bring more jobs, safer and more vibrant neighborhoods and better educational opportunities to our citizens, we are fortunate to have such an outstanding community partner as Klein Steel. I am grateful for the significant investment that they are making in our city, and for the jobs that will result from it. Klein Steel has had a long-standing commitment to Rochester, and this latest investment demonstrates their ongoing faith in both our city and its workers."

Klein Steel's Engineers and Operations experts partnered with the world's leading manufacturers for the steel construction industry to configure an innovative, intelligent steel production system that performs multiple production sequences automatically and that are managed and monitored through intelligent devices that assure maximum efficiency and quality. The result is a custom configured system that runs different operations-from shot blasting and sawing through tracking and loading-automatically with Klein Steel Certified technicians performing vital diagnostic and quality control tasks. Ficep S.p.A., located at the foot of the Alps on the northern border between Switzerland and Italy, was the lead partner with support from its U.S. subsidiary located in Forest Hill, Maryland.

In addition to Ficep, Klein Steel partnered locally with RG&E, M&T Bank and Buckingham Properties to fast track the new facility.
