Mill Steel Co., one of the nation’s largest distributors of flat-rolled carbon steel, has acquired certain assets of S&S Steel Services, Inc. (S&S), an Indianapolis/Anderson based supplier of carbon flat-rolled steel service. Terms of the deal, which closed on January 11, 2016, were not disclosed.

S&S Steel services manufacturing customers in the Midwest, Mid-South and Mid-Atlantic United States and will support Mill Steel’s growing automotive, construction, home appliance, agriculture, and HVAC business in the southeastern U.S. and Mexico.

Steel slitting and cut-to-length processing operations will continue at the 215,000 square foot Anderson, Indiana processing facility. Certain members of the company’s leadership and commercial teams will remain in place and another 20 sales and production jobs are expected to be generated by the acquisition. In the coming months, Mill Steel plans to increase the existing production and distribution capability with the installation of additional processing equipment.

Mill Steel Chairman and CEO, David S. Samrick said the acquisition is a mutually beneficial transaction for Mill Steel and S&S’ employees, suppliers, and customers.

Mill Steel also announced it will move its Building/Painted Products Midwest operations from its Jeffersonville, IN plant to its recently acquired service center in Anderson, IN. Mill Steel expects to complete the move of the Midwest Building/Painted Products division by the end of April 2016.

Samrick said the recent moves of the Steel Structural Products (Louisville) division along with the consolidation of Mill Steel’s Building/Painted Products to its Anderson, IN location is a win, win, and win for the Company.
