LJ Star Inc., a supplier of process observation equipment including sight glasses and sight flow indicators, completed a construction project that increased warehouse, manufacturing and office space at its headquarters in Twinsburg, Ohio.

According to the company, the increased space, particularly the warehouse storage and handling capacity, will enable LJ Star to fulfill parts and product orders from stock, providing immediate delivery for many of its products. Strong market conditions in the sectors targeted by LJ Star, including pharmaceuticals, food and beverage, chemical, and oil and gas, played a part.

“We made a significant investment to increase our square footage with a particular focus on warehouse capacity,” said Ted Mielnik, president of LJ Star. “This allows us to maintain larger inventory levels for on-time delivery and order fulfillment. Domestic availability of critical parts and shortened lead times should help our customers meet their business goals and objectives.”
