Olympic Acquires Berlin Metals

Written by Tim Triplett

Olympic Steel, Inc., has acquired Berlin Metals LLC, the Hammond, Ind., service center. Terms of the all-cash deal were not disclosed.

With approximately $50 million in annual sales, Berlin Metals processes and distributes prime tin mill products and stainless-steel strip in slit coil form. The company is also a supplier of galvanized, light-gauge cold rolled sheet and strip, as well as other coated steels in coil form, to customers in the building products, automotive, and specialized industrial markets.

“This acquisition adds new products and markets, both of which are central to our growth strategy,” said Olympic Steel’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Michael Siegal. “Berlin Metals also has a growing stainless-steel business, compounding our organic growth in these products. With minimal customer overlap, this is a perfect complement to existing operations.”

The management team, including President Roy Berlin, will remain at the company. The business will be included in Olympic Steel’s Specialty Metals Flat Products reporting segment, which is led by Specialty Metals President Andy Markowitz.
