Where is the B&M plant in Ohio?

Just curious because I think it would be neat to drive by if I am in the area on my way to the East Coast.

I believe it's in Batavia Ohio.

Somehow I doubt you should bet telling that kind of thing, a confidentiality clause or something...If you work for Morgan. And when did it start calling itself 'Chance-Morgan Hyper'?

Since Dana Morgan retired and merged his company with Chance.

Cody316, can you tell your bosses to come up with a reasonable fix for Chaos so they stop breaking? And fix the autorelease. This manual thing CP is doing just absolutely sucks.

I know they call themselves Chance-Morgan.

He says he works for 'Chance-Morgan Hyper', which would suggest that that is what they make, Hypers. But Chance-Morgan makes coasters, rolling stock, and flat rides.

I did not say who it is sold to nor what type of hyper it is. Its not like we are trying to hide anything as the track is starting to pile up on the north lot near Kellogg Freeway. As for Chaos that is flats department I just deal in track. *** Edited 8/3/2005 2:15:36 PM UTC by cody316***

If Dana Morgan retired, then he has a funny way of vacationing at IAAPA every year.

B&M doesn't own any plant, it's just a steel fabricator that has the contract.

Sortta like GCI's old head?

Semi Retired.

I live about 5 miles from Batavia, Maybe someday I'll cruise around and figure it out.

Southern Ohio Fabricators

Going south on 275, get off on 32, the Eastgate exit, and go due east for about 15 minutes. There will be a road just on the other side of an overpass. Turn on that, then go south behind the ZF plant.

You get to Old 74. Across the street from the ZF plant is a plain looking set of warehouse like buildings, a small ridge in front of it, and a gravel parking lot. Just a couple of coaster-like support poles by the entrance road. That's SOFCO.

Very covert, no signs, no nothing. And very often there's piles of track and supports out there that you can walk right up to and take pictures of, currently they are making WOF's Patriot.

I saw that & you gotta give CF credit for the color scheme on their rides....for a minute it looked like typical SF paint for a superman ride til I noticed the white line running down the spine.

Just to clarify, it isn't a "B&M" plant. Southern Ohio Fabricators is an independent company that does precision fabrication of structural steel for B&M amoung others.

Dana is still in the business. He owns 50% of the ride operation at Belmont Park. It may be that he is a consultant for Chance-Morgan, possibly written into the sale of the company.

Directly from the website:

Apparently, they are Chance Morgan, Inc.

Well said Moosh.. seeing how most of CHance-Morgan's coaster customers are not in the US anymore.
