Schoonover Industries, Inc. was founded in 1983 as R.S. Industries by Robert Schoonover. SII was originally located on a working farm and operated from this location for approximately a year. Much of the business during this first year was subcontract work from area fabricators. In January 1984 R.S. Industries purchased its first building, located at 732 Clark Ave. in Ashland, Ohio. In 1986 they incorporated and became Schoonover Industries, Inc.
As business flourished, the Clark Street location became too small. A new plant site was selected and purchased on Simanton Road where the plant remains today. The building was enlarged and remodeled, providing SII with its main office; laser cell; fabrication and welding areas; press, shear and tool rooms and shipping facilities. Additions have been made on three different occasions, the most recent with an expansion of our Engineering Department.
During over 30 years since the company was founded, employment has grown from 1 part-time employee to approximately 30 full-time employees on three shifts. Building and equipment requirements have changed numerous times through the years, but Schoonover’s philosophy of doing business remains the same as it was on the very first day:
Customer Service and Satisfaction
