Contech Construction Products takes on a new name

February 10, 2012 by  

Contech Construction Products Inc., a large manufacturer of prefabricated bridges, as well as numerous other products, announced Wednesday, February 8, that it has taken on a new ownership structure and a new name. The West Chester-based manufacturer, located northeast of Cincinnati, is now known as Contech Engineered Solutions, LLC. The company says that this change will take effect immediately. Ron Keating, president of the company, stated that the new name reflects the company’s growth over the years. The company has expanded beyond the manufacturing of construction products to include engineering solutions and innovations. Contech believes the new name more accurately represents their business model.

When large businesses and companies in and around the Cincinnati area make corporate name changes or other significant changes within the company, they often rely upon the printing services of local print companies for changes to marketing materials and other print products. Printing companies are often called upon for stationery printing, new business card printing, flyer printing and numerous other materials that bear the old name or information of the company.

In the 2010 Deloitte Cincinnati USA 100, Contech Construction Products, now Contech Engineered Solutions, ranked as the ninth-largest privately owned company in the Cincinnati area. As of the end of 2011, the company employed nearly 1,400 employees. In addition to its new name, Contech announced that a group of equity investors has taken over ownership of the company. Additionally, Contech has obtained a $125 million credit facility and a $100 million revolving loan. $600 million of debt is removed by the new financing agreements.
