Dayton International Airport is hosting a ribbon cutting at 11 a.m. Friday for SB Specialty Metals LLC, the first new business at the former Emery hub and UPS terminal at Dayton International Airport.
Last year, hub owner Industrial Realty Group announced that Dallas-based SB Specialty Metals would move into the hub, which it has dubbed Air Commerce. SB sells and distributes tool steel, high speed steel, powder metallurgy steel, alloy steel and stainless steel for the aerospace, automotive, energy, packaging, medical equipment, recycling, food processing, heavy equipment and knife industries.
The facility will employ 25 people with an additional five people in a new grinding center.
