Two Million Pound Machine Bound for Germany

Tuesday, November 16, 2010

On October 17, the Port of Cleveland exported a two million pound machine manufactured by an Ohio company to Bremen, Germany for use in ArcelorMittal’s plant there.

Butech Bliss, a 150-year-old company based in Salem, manufactures heavy equipment for the metals processing industry. For over a year, the company’s 230 employees have been working to manufacture the shear for ArcelorMittal, the largest steel producer in the world. The machine is designed to cut three-inch-thick by 86 inch wide steel in its Bremen Hot Mill. The company was awarded the work after it won a competitive process with European-based companies for the job.

Will Friedman, CEO of the Cleveland-Cuyahoga County Port Authority, said, “This shipment really drives home that industrial goods manufactured in Ohio are competitive globally and that the Port of Cleveland helps these firms drive down transport cost. We are very focused helping exporters reach global markets.”

The work is being coordinated by Federal Marine Terminals and will be handled by the International Longshoreman’s Association.
