Custom Steel Designs LLC Expands Operations in LaGrange County
Shipshewana, IN. (April 13, 2011) — The LaGrange County Economic Development Corporation (LCEDC), in conjunction with Custom Steel Designs LLC is excited to announce the expansion of Custom Steel Designs at their facility at 1665 S. 1000 W Shipshewana, IN. Custom Steel Designs LLC is an Amish owned firm specializing in custom designed architectural metals for the home building and remodeling industry, as well as the recreational vehicle industry. The firm also manufactures a custom line of patio furniture and operates a custom powder coating facility that performs contract work for customers in other industries.
Custom Steel Designs LLC was established by Paul Miller in 2004. Miller started his company in his garage with himself as the sole employee. The facility expanded over previous years, but the company’s growth called the addition of a new facility. This year’s expansion included building a new 7200 ft2 manufacturing facility, which more than doubled the company’s existing capacity to around 13,200 ft2. The company also added two new associates to the plant, bringing total employment at the company to 21 full time employees. “We are very happy with the steady growth that Custom Steel Designs LLC has experienced in LaGrange County over the past seven years” Miller said. “We initially started working with wrought-iron staircases for new home builders and over the years have been able to expand and diversify our products and customer base, which has allowed for future growth.”
“We are excited that Custom Steel Designs LLC has continued to grow their business in LaGrange County” said Keith Gillenwater, Executive Director of the LaGrange County Economic Development Corporation. “Custom Steel Designs LLC is another perfect example of the dedicated entrepreneurs that are so prevalent in LaGrange County and in our Amish community. They serve a variety of our local manufacturers and builders, which has allowed them to continue to expand. The company is a valued small business that will only continue to grow as the market for high quality, locally produced goods strengthens.”
