Utilizing these services, Mountain Ridge Metals can create a multitude of products, spanning from insulated window frames, solar panel brackets, doors, and many more aluminum metal products, according to Sponsler.
The construction project took approximately 15 months to complete, and according to Sponsler, they began to move into their new space back in August 2022 – though construction was still occurring at the time of their move-in.
Originally, the business had planned to begin its expansion project back in 2020, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the project was temporarily put on the back burner, according to Sponsler.
Mountain Ridge Metals’ newest facility is located at 1678 State Rt. 209, Millersburg, and their original facility is right down the road on 1517 State Rt. 209, Millersburg.
