American Baler Announces Bellevue, OH Facility Expansion

American Baler Company, a leading manufacturer of balers since 1945, is excited to announce an
ambitious expansion project at its Bellevue, Ohio facility. The project will commence on April 22, 2024,
and is expected to be completed by the fall of 2025. Coinciding with American Baler’s 80th anniversary,
the expansion project will increase the manufacturing footprint by 20% through the addition of a
strategic wing to the existing facility.
The expansion will not only increase the physical size of the facility but also improve American Baler’s
ability to serve its employees and customers with innovation, safety, quality, and efficiency
improvements. It will increase available capacity for fabrication, production, and assembly with an eye
on the reduction of equipment and parts lead times. The project will be carried out in three phases. The
initial phase will include site and utility preparation, construction of the new addition, and installation of
overhead cranes. Subsequent phases will include the installation of state-of-the-art steel processing
equipment along with workflow enhancements to optimize material movement throughout the plant.
General Manager Nathan Kuhl is looking forward to turning this expansion project from a concept into
reality. He states “Project planning began nearly 18 months ago, and I am grateful that Avis Industrial
has the confidence to continue investment in our Bellevue Ohio facility, operation, and staff”.
D.J. VanDeusen, president of Recylcing & Waste Equipment Division of Avis Industrial, added “This
expansion project is a testament to the accomplishments of the entire American Baler team and the
demonstrated loyalty of its customers to rely on American Baler for their recycling equipment needs.”
As American Baler Company steps into its 80th year, it remains as committed as ever to its mission of
producing the highest quality products in its class and offering unmatched customer service. The
expansion of the Bellevue facility is a testament to this commitment and its ongoing pledge to call
Bellevue home.
