Crystal Steel Fabricators will need 126 workers for new Caroline County plant

BALTIMORE, MD (October 12, 2016)Crystal Steel Fabricators, a family-owned structural steel fabricator headquartered in Delmar, Del., is opening a new manufacturing facility in Caroline County, creating 126 new jobs over the next two years. The company recently acquired the 100,000 square-foot former ES Steel building in the Frank Adams Industrial Park in Federalsburg. This is the first Maryland location for Crystal Steel, which also has facilities in Pennsylvania, Tennessee, and the Philippines.

The company specializes in large-scale projects such as stadiums, hospitals, bridges, and schools. Significant projects completed in Maryland include MGM Resort Casino at National Harbor, the Rockville District Courthouse, the Ocean City Convention Center, and Tyser Tower Stadium at the University of Maryland.

Crystal Steel is currently accepting applications for several positions at the new Maryland facility, including CNC machine operators, welders and structural steel fabricators, and resumes should be submitted to alana@crystalsteel.net.

“We are always excited to provide people with great career opportunities, and many of our employees have been with us for 10 years or more,” said Emad Mohamed, executive vice president at Crystal Steel. “We expect strong growth, which will provide folks in Federalsburg with the chance to move up and become leaders.”

“Crystal Steel’s plan to invest more than $4 million and create more than 126 jobs is exactly the kind of economic development our administration pledged to bring to Maryland,” said Governor Hogan, a strong advocate for Maryland manufacturing jobs. “In addition to bringing high-paying jobs to the Eastern Shore, employees will learn new skills like lean manufacturing and CNC programming. This project is a win for Crystal Steel, a win for the Caroline County, and a win for the citizens of Maryland.”

Caroline County Commissioner Dan Franklin, who also serves on the Caroline Economic Development Corp. board of directors, said he is pleased to see more manufacturing come to the county. “Caroline County has a great workforce for manufacturing,” Franklin said. “Because of our agricultural roots, we have a lot of people who like to work with their hands and tackle mechanical challenges. It’s very exciting to have new career opportunities open up for our residents, especially at a business as strong as Crystal Steel.”
