Geiger Brothers, Inc. Announces Expansion in Jackson, Ohio

Geiger Brothers, Inc., in collaboration with JobsOhio, Ohio Southeast Economic Development (OhioSE), and the Jackson County Economic Development Partnership, today announced an investment of over $500,000 to expand its operations in Jackson, Ohio, creating 20 new high-wage jobs.

Founded in 1909, Geiger Brothers, Inc. performs highly specialized engineering and manufacturing to support niche industries including nuclear, food, energy, and infrastructure. The company’s state-of-the-art fabrication facility in Jackson, Ohio provides piping, structural steel, and miscellaneous metals for complex projects.

“Geiger Brothers is a longstanding Ohio company providing innovative construction and engineering solutions to customers for over a century,” said JobsOhio President and CEO J.P. Nauseef. “Through the investment and expansion of its fabrication division, Geiger Brothers will add 20 new jobs, reinforcing Ohio’s reputation as a powerhouse of manufacturing resiliency and talent.”

Due to increased industry demand, the company is expanding its fabrication division to compete for work in modular construction. The investment includes improvements to their fabrication shop and the purchase of new machinery and equipment to support increased production and future expansion.

“We’re thrilled to continue investing in the community that’s invested so much in us,” said Erik Massie, President and Chief Financial Officer at Geiger Brothers. “This expansion project will not only create new jobs but also help us open up new efficiencies and compete for larger, more complex projects in the region. Our economic development partners at the local, regional, and state levels have been a tremendous help in bringing this project to life, and we couldn’t be more appreciative of their support.”

Geiger Brothers proudly calls Southeast Ohio home, with its headquarters in Jackson, OH. This central location serves as the cornerstone of the company’s operations, overseeing two additional facilities in Ohio and Tennessee. This strategic placement underscores Geiger Brothers’ commitment to the region’s growth and prosperity. The expansion in Jackson was supported by an $80,000 JobsOhio Grant for building improvements and machinery. Additionally, Jackson County Economic Development Partnership provided further backing with a $225,000 low-interest loan through the CDBG ED RLF program.

“We are tremendously proud that Geiger Brothers calls Jackson County home. Our workers have benefitted from their growth over the years,” said Jackson County Economic Development Partnership President and CEO Sam Brady. “This newest investment will allow them to expand into a brand new growth sector that will create brand new high-wage jobs right here in Jackson County.”

Geiger Brothers’ announcement is celebrated by local elected officials as well. Jackson County Board of Commissioners President Paul Haller said, “The commissioners were happy to be able to support this expansion project. The support provided by all of our economic development partners to get this deal over the finish line only underscores why Ohio and Jackson County are great places to do business.”

By expanding the capabilities of its fabrication shop in Jackson, the company will be more competitive at the field installation level, able to produce skids, assemblies, and pipe spools to feed multiple projects across multiple locations and states.

“We congratulate Geiger Brothers on this expansion in Jackson and are pleased that OhioSE is able to support growth for one of the key sectors in our region,” said OhioSE vice president, Katy Farber.
