Euclid Chamber of Commerce Names American Punch Company 'Large Business of the Year'

Increasing sales allow Ohio-based punch and die manufacturer to expand, add jobs at Euclid plant

We are pleased to recognize the efforts of companies like American Punch that have contributed significantly to our city

    EUCLID, OH, May 11, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ -- American Punch Company was honored as "Large Business of the Year" at the Euclid Chamber of Commerce Annual Chamber Awards Dinner held May 4.

The punch and die manufacturer was recognized for the positive impact its continued growth has had on the city of Euclid. Sales at American Punch have far exceeded projections, leading to the hiring of several machinists and operators for their world-class manufacturing facility.

"It is a great honor for American Punch to receive Euclid's Large Business of the Year award. It means a lot to the Firm as well as to the employees to be recognized for such an award," American Punch Controller Marlo Slusarski said.

"We have been based in the city for over 20 years and it has proven to be a great location for us," she said. "The City has always worked with us and has been a helpful resource for future expansion projects. The location within such a diverse industrial area gives us availability to numerous resources such as materials and services used for the production of our product as well as a larger pool of experienced workforce."

Founded in 1990, the company moved into a larger facility in 1995, more than quadrupling its capacity. American Punch expanded again in June 2008, when construction was completed on an even larger custom manufacturing factory that also provided room for the most advanced equipment.

"We are pleased to recognize the efforts of companies like American Punch that have contributed significantly to our city," says Sheila Gibbons, Executive Director of the Euclid Chamber of Commerce, which annually honors businesses, organizations and individuals that have contributed to the economic growth and welfare of the local business community.

"Our city is a better place to live and do business because of the strength of our business community," Gibbons said.
