R. W. Beckett Corporation, North America’s leading manufacturer of oil combustion products used in home heating, hot water pressure cleaning equipment, as well as numerous other custom commercial, and industrial applications, purchased the assets and product rights of Westwood Products, a New Jersey Company. Beckett will move these assets to North Ridgeville, Ohio, where the acquired products will be produced. The move will require a substantial overhaul of company operations in North Ridgeville and substantial employee training to teach new and existing employees the skills required to build the newly purchased products. The company was awarded a $125,000 JobsOhio training grant to support the project. R.W. Beckett will add 30 new jobs to its current North Ridgeville staff.

“We are thrilled with the opportunity to broaden our portfolio of products and bring new solutions and technologies to our customers,” says Kevin Beckett, President and CEO of the R.W. Beckett Corporation. “We are equally gratified that the partnership with JobsOhio and Team NEO has accelerated our ability to successfully create jobs and grow our investment in Northeast Ohio.“
