New Business Highlights

Injection Alloys Group Selects Middletown for U.S. Operations

Western Environmental finished room

Injection Alloys, Inc. provides the complete range of injection core wires, feed equipment and technical services to the global steel industry and foundry operations, providing complete solutions geared to each customer’s requirements.

United Kingdom-based Injection Alloys Group, manufacturer of the widest range of cored injection wire in the world, has begun operations at its new U.S. plant at 1700 MADE Industrial Drive in Middletown’s MADE Business Park.

Injection Alloys, Inc., USA Division, moved into the 27,000-square-foot facility in January and has made a $720,000 investment in facilities and equipment, including machinery for the company’s patented Hi-Cal ® technology for adding calcium to liquid steel to create seamless, ultra-high-yield cored wire.

The proximity to a robust community of steel industry-related businesses together with the City’s attractive incentives to locate here and create new jobs drew Injection Alloys to Middletown.

Currently building its team of engineers, metallurgists, material scientists, project managers, machine operators and sales and service personnel, the company expects to bring 38 new jobs to Middletown in the next three years, with an estimated payroll of $1.2 million. Production on regular calcium-based wiring is under way, while Hi-Cal ® production will begin in May. This is Injection Alloys’ sole U.S. location. Its sales and service team will travel throughout the country and Canada; product will be sold worldwide.

Commerce Corner Gas Station and Restaurant Development

By late summer, Middletown’s I-75 and Ohio 122 Interchange will benefit by the opening of a $2 million, 6,000-square-foot BP gas station and Subway restaurant development. Owner MNR Oil will solicit bids in early spring.

The station will replace the two removed during construction of the interchange, returning a service that will benefit area employees and residents, as well as visitors shopping at or staying in nearby retail and hotel concerns, respectively.

The development will be sited at the northeast corner of Ohio 122 and Commerce Drive, just off I-75. The interchange is currently the only one between the Cincinnati and Dayton beltways with no gas station service.

Towne Mall Galleria Adding BW3s, Aspen Dental

The revitalization of Towne Mall Galleria continues, with a new $4 million development on the site’s outparcels moving forward. The latest additions to the growing list of businesses locating at the center include a Buffalo Wild Wings restaurant, offices for independent dental care provider Aspen Dental and, in anticipation of future needs, space for one or two additional tenants. Construction is scheduled to begin this spring, creating new jobs and bringing new services to Greater Middletown area residents at a convenient location just west of the Ohio 122 and I-75 Interchange.

The Slice Gearing Up for Summer Opening

The “Pickleroni” (pickles and pepperoni) and the “Apple Cinnamon Flop Topper” are just two of the culinary innovations to which Middletonians will be introduced when The Slice pizzeria and tavern opens at 1300 Central Avenue this summer. Co-owners and brothers Shane and Brandon Scott, who own Cincinnati’s popular Cincy by the Slice, were attracted to Middletown’s downtown and the synergy between the residents and business community—they like what is going on in Middletown, the potential for a successful entertainment district, and want to be a part of it. Currently working on renovations—a new roof and interior theming—the restaurant will be open 11 a.m. until after midnight six days a week, offering eat-in, carry-out and delivery.
