CARDINGTON — Cardington Yutaka Technologies, Inc., held a groundbreaking ceremony on Friday, Oct. 12, for its new warehouse expansion.

CYT was established in February, 1955, and mass production start up was in June, 1996. The company sits on 90 acres of land and today the current plant is 475,000 square-feet under roof.

“CYT employs 872 associates (728 full-time and 144 temporary) who focus on manufacturing high-quality, yet reasonable priced, exhaust systems and drive systems that exceed their customer’s expectations,” a company news release states.

Yutaka is the largest employer in Morrow County.

CYT officially announced the 123,450 square-foot expansion of a new warehouse, which will connect to the existing facility to improve their overall logistics and manufacturing characteristics.

The company will invest $12.5 million and add approximately 35 new jobs with this expansion. The completion date for the project is scheduled for August, 2019.
