County Executive Budish and Council Approve $905,000 Loan to Help Bring FabTech to Cuyahoga County



Cleveland - Cuyahoga County Executive Armond Budish and Cuyahoga County Council approved a $905,000 loan to FabTech from Cuyahoga County’s Western Reserve Fund, to assist with the purchase of a new facility in Brecksville, Ohio. FabTech is currently located in Peninsula, Ohio.

“The relocation of FabTech to Cuyahoga County is another example of community partners collaborating to attract new businesses to our region and providing jobs for our residents,” said Budish. “Creating jobs is a top priority for my administration, and our partnership with FabTech is proof that we are on the right track.”

Established in 1994, FabTech specializes in fabricated and preglaze curtain walls, storefront, and door systems for the commercial window and door market. Additionally, FabTech provides shop drawings, specialty fab, unitized curtain wall, and engineering assistance.

“With the help of Cuyahoga County, we can acquire a new facility that is twice the size of our current building, allowing us to meet our current customer commitments and meet the increasing demands for our services,” said Michael Boehringer, Owner, FabTech. “We are also excited to work with the County’s various job programs to assist with staffing our new location.”

Cuyahoga County provided financial assistance for the purchase of a new facility, which will redevelop a vacant building and eliminate blight within the Brecksville community. FabTech will bring more than 50 new jobs to Cuyahoga County, generating approximately $2,161,180 in annual payroll.

“This is a deal that FabTech and Cuyahoga County can be proud of. We are adding good jobs that maximize our advanced manufacturing strength and our skilled workforce, both powerful assets in our County,” Councilman Jack Schron said. “Putting an underutilized facility back into productive use is the icing on the cake.”

The project will be funded from the county’s Western Reserve Fund, a revolving loan fund that provides financing to job-creating and job retaining projects in the county.
