Union Partners Acquires Heidtman Research Facility

Written by Sandy Williams

Union Partners announced the acquisition of Heidtman Steel’s Automotive Steel Technical Center in Gibraltar, Mich. Union will use the steel testing and research facility to bring new advanced high-strength and ultra-high-strength steels to the marketplace. The acquisition also provides the opportunity for future expansion to over 150,000 square feet at the company’s existing Gibraltar facility.

“One of the biggest motivations for us in starting Union Partners was to identify and support – both financially and operationally – opportunities in the metals industry where innovation is alive and well,” said the company’s founders Chris Hutter and Paul Douglass in a joint statement. “This testing facility deepens our commitment to the next generation of steel products. It also deepens our commitment to our mills and customers as we all work together to understand the vast capabilities of these new materials.”

Union Partners is a full-service metals and logistics holding company with locations throughout North America.
