Large scale welding & fabrication firm, AT&F, headquartered in Cleveland, Ohio, says that the new Port of Cleveland to Antwerp service is a welcome addition to the service lines for AT&F’s European customers. Service direct from Cleveland is four days faster than from U.S. East Coast ports, and at a lower cost.

“This regular service coincides with AT&F’s export strategy to deliver around the world the large scale products and components for heavy industrial markets that have been the cornerstone of our business in the U.S. for decades. Access to direct ocean shipping allows us to deliver easily what once took special trucking and rail to deliver to East and West Coast ports prior to loading for overseas deliveries,” stated Michael Forde Ripich, AT&F’s president.

The Cleveland-Europe Express is the first and only regularly scheduled international container and break bulk service (80 Ton) on the Great Lakes per the Port of Cleveland. “This is a big deal for our big capabilities,” Ripich concluded.

In the USA, AT&F says it has built an outstanding corporate reputation providing custom steel manufacturing solutions to industries throughout the world. Quality and innovation have fueled its growth and helped to define the manufacturing group it is today.  AT&F operates 700,000 square feet of manufacturing space throughout the globe: Cleveland, Ohio; Orrville, Ohio; Charleston, South Carolina; Arhus, Denmark; and Mumbai, India.
