PORT WASHINGTON -- Tucked away in the hillsides of Ohio, Bates Metal Products Inc. has provided custom, high-quality display solutions to their valued customers.

Owners, Jimmy, Terry and James Bates pride themselves in providing the highest quality products and services in the area to local organizations and small businesses as well as international corporations and retailers.

In addition to point of purchase displays, Bates Metal utilizes the newest technologies in metal fabrication and finishing.

"We have recently purchased and put to work a laser cutter. This is a great addition and asset to have -- it will increase production and lower costs," said Jimmy Bates.

The CNC (computer number control) laser will use laser technology to cut steel, stainless steel, aluminum, wood and acrylic materials to any shape.

In the metal fabrication and display sign field, this is a valuable tool.

Bates Metal Productions is located in Port Washington, Ohio. One of the owners, Jimmy, has recently moved to the Cambridge area, is working on expanding the business to the area.

"Our products and services can benefit the Cambridge area," explained Jimmy Bates. "We have some of the latest metal cutting technology and are ready and willing to work with business owners from Cambridge."

Bates Metal employs 65 people. Another thing that the Bates' pride themselves in is by being able to offer a company large enough to employ so many people and handle large jobs, but still be small enough to care about all their employees and customers.

Business hours are 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. The phone number is 498-8371.
