Investment and Jobs Going Into Euclid’s Industrial Corridor

The first building at Bluestone Business Park is now home to Guardian Technologies.

Much activity can be seen in Euclid’s Industrial Corridor - from private investment to major public infrastructure improvements.   

Just off East 260th Street, Guardian Technologies has become the second tenant to move into Bluestone Business Park.  The company leased approximately 48,000 square feet in the first building at Bluestone for their new corporate headquarters and distribution operations.  

Guardian Technologies is a leading manufacturer of air purification systems.  The company will bring 25 – 35 jobs to Euclid.

Further west, Chesterfield Steel is undertaking a major renovation project.  The primary driveway at the facility has been replaced and new landscaping is being added to the busy site. 

Chesterfield Steel is located at the corner of East 222nd Street and Tungsten Road.  An affiliate of Cleveland-based Steel Warehouse, the company provides custom processed steel products to customers throughout the world. 

With help from the City’s Storefront Renovation Program, a former auto body shop on Tungsten Road will be transformed into the new home of JLJI Enterprises.

The new building is just two doors down from JLJI’s current location.  The company expects to make the short move to the new facility in the Summer of 2015. 

JLJI Enterprises provides a full range of non-residential construction services.  The company has worked on some of the largest development projects in Northeast Ohio, including the Horshshoe Casino and the Flats East Bank Office Tower.

Through-out the fall, work has continued on the second phase of the East 222nd Street Reconstruction Project.  The $3.3M roadway project includes the installation of new curbs, sidewalks, lighting and utilities from Tungsten Road to Euclid Avenue.

This strech of East 222nd Street is home to some of the largest employers in Euclid, including Eaton Corporation, TECT Power and Euclid Heat Treating.  The roadway work will continue in the spring with the resurfacing of Tungsten Road from East 222nd Street to Chardon Road.
