Panelmatic Inc. expands into Brookfield

BROOKFIELD — A maker of custom-built electrical and process instrument control panels, Panelmatic Inc., has added a new division that will be headquartered in the township.

Panelmatic Building Solutions will operate in a 73,000-square-foot plant on Parkway Drive that formerly housed Legacy Measurements, according to the Youngstown Warren Regional Chamber.

When it’s up and running, the company will employ about 30 full-time workers who will build Panelmatic’s custom control houses. The company had been manufacturing the control houses in Boardman, but space limitations hindered growth.

The move will allow the company to meet the need for larger control houses and make more units at one time.
