E M I MCSWEENEY’S INC. WINTER 2012 • South Point, Ohio “The coal mining industry has been very strong for several years, and I think it’s going to continue to be strong for the next three to five years.” // JOE MCSWEENEY, CEO Carol Farris welds a DO6 bolt wrench at McSweeney’s South Point, Ohio, factory.. Providing A Better Option McSweeney’s Inc. is expanding internationally its line of unique products that improve mine safety and operation. [ BY RUSS GAGER ] Founded in 1967 by Larry McSweeney, McSweeney’s Inc. quickly gravitated toward manufacturing unique products for the mining industry. Still president PROFILE of the company, McSweeney had been a miner for “the better part of his life,” says his son Joe McSweeney, who is CEO. “Our business has been somewhat focused around mining from the very McSweeney’s Inc.. www.mcsweeneysinc.com | 2011 revenue: $17 million | Headquarters: South Point, Ohio | Employees: 147 | Specialties: Forging, machining and custom fabricating for mining, railroad and chemical industries beginning,” Joe McSweeney maintains. He manages the business with his sister, Vice President Sandy Blackburn. Located in South Point, Ohio, in the tri-state area of Ohio, Kentucky and West Virginia, McSweeney’s Inc. is near steel mills and a nickel plant as well as companies that support the nearby coal mining industry. The company is approaching its fourth year of successful annual ISO 9001:2008 recertification, and this year received the small business of the year award from the Greater Lawrence County Area Chamber of Commerce. The company will celebrate its 45th anniversary in 2012. “Our father had been a coal miner the better part of his life,” McSweeney says. “He left the mining industry and moved to Huntington, W. Va., and got in the trucking industry. Then he got into sales for another company. That company called on the mining industry, and he left them and started his own business. At that time, he was calling on the chemical and mining industry throughout a tristate area, even into Pennsylvania.” The elder McSweeney’s business started as a job shop machine shop, but the company now is strictly a production 128 emi-magazine.com http://www.emi-magazine.com
