The Energy Cooperative Powers Expanded Sanoh Plant

Sanoh America, a parts supplier to Honda, Nissan, Toyota, Subaru, Mazda, Mitsubishi, Ford and Hyundai, recently expanded its Mount Vernon, Ohio, plant. The company specializes in corrosion-resistant tubing, tubular brazed assemblies, plastic tubing assemblies and stainless steel tubing assemblies.

“This new building is great,” said Randy Gore, plant manager, adding the heating and lighting system is more efficient than in the old building. With the plant being all one facility, instead of three, operations are able to run more smoothly, he said.

During the company’s improvement process, Sanoh also invested $2 million in new machinery and equipment. The expanded plant is 212,000 square feet.

The Energy Cooperative, a member of the Ohio Rural Electric Cooperatives, serves electricity to the plant.
