JWF Industries has acquired an 80,000-square-foot plant in Davisville, West Virginia, previously operated by Sunshine Metals of Baker.

The plant’s assets include a 10-foot x 20-foot Onsrud plate mill, a 15-foot x 35-foot Onsrud plate mill, a 20-ton crane with plate suction lifters and four full-time employees.
