The new shop will also allow support economic growth and local economy in the area.

The new West Orange fabrication shop adds about an additional 33,000 square feet of fabrication space capacity to STI Group’s already considerable capacity of hundreds of thousands of space, allowing STI Group to handle even more throughput. The new shop has been specially designed and built to be ideally suited for two of STI Group’s core services: modular fabrication and pipe fabrication. The facility will also feature a 50 ft X 50 ft pad which the company will use for large assembly. Finally, the facility will house about 6,500 square feet of office space to be used for executive and administrative functions.

The facility is located on a sprawling 30 acre site that can easily be used for expansions or additional storage.

Another major benefit of the new West Orange facility is that it is expected to bring in about 100 new jobs to the area while the facility itself will also stimulating the local economy.
