Crystal Steel to Open Manufacturing Facility in Caroline County

10/12/2016 | Karen Glenn Hood

Crystal Steel Fabricators, a family-owned structural steel fabricator headquartered in Delmar, Del., is opening a new manufacturing facility in Caroline County, and creating 126 new jobs over the next two years.

The company recently acquired the 100,000 square-foot former ES Steel building in the Frank Adams Industrial Park in Federalsburg. This is the first Maryland location for Crystal Steel, which also has facilities in Pennsylvania, Tennessee, and the Philippines.

The company is currently accepting applications for several positions at the new Maryland facility, including CNC machine operators, welders and structural steel fabricators, and resumes should be submitted to

"We are always excited to provide people with great career opportunities, and many of our employees have been with us for 10 years or more," said Emad Mohamed, executive vice president at Crystal Steel. "We expect strong growth, which will provide folks in Federalsburg with the chance to move up and become leaders."

"Crystal Steel's plan to invest more than $4 million and create more than 126 jobs is exactly the kind of economic development our administration pledged to bring to Maryland," said Governor Hogan, a strong advocate for Maryland manufacturing jobs. "In addition to bringing high-paying jobs to the Eastern Shore, employees will learn new skills like lean manufacturing and CNC programming. This project is a win for Crystal Steel, a win for Caroline County, and a win for the citizens of Maryland."

"Crystal Steel is among a number of companies that have opened new locations in Maryland this year, which speaks to our efforts to truly be 'Open for Business'," said Maryland Commerce Secretary Mike Gill. "Not only do we have a highly-skilled workforce ideal for manufacturing jobs, but we also have an outstanding transportation infrastructure, giving companies like Crystal Steel a strategic advantage when traveling to job sites throughout the region."
