Erie-based McInnes Rolled Rings, a manufacturer of seamless rolled rings, is planning a future expansion, according to a recent Erie Times-News article.
On January 2, Erie City Council held a public hearing on the proposed rezoning of several parcels in the 1500 block of East 12th Street owned by the Greater Erie Industrial Development Corp. and affiliates of McInnes.
The land, currently zoned for light industrial use, would have to be rezoned for heavy industry use, based on the size and scope of the planned expansion.
According to the news report, the company is considering an expansion of about 100,000 square feet that would allow it to produce larger rolled rings.
Erie City Council approved the request at its January 16 meeting.
