In keeping up with the growth of the synthetic rubber dewatering market, Anderson International Corp has expanded its operations. The company relocated from its Cleveland facility to Stow, where the company now operates within a building on a 10-acre site which can accommodate expansions and an overhead crane system for moving loading their heavy machinery equipment.
