Written by Tim Triplett

In a strategic purchase that expands its production capabilities in the Southwest, SteelCo USA has acquired certain assets of the former Douglas Steel Supply, based in Vernon, Calif. The assets acquired in the agreement include multiple large-scale production lines, material handling equipment, vehicles, tooling and inventory.

“The addition of this equipment to SteelCo USA’s existing production operations marks a significant step forward in our ability to provide our customers with the breadth and depth of processing services they need, while maintaining the level of quality and speed of service that they expect,” said Tim Miller, VP/General Manager of SteelCo USA, Chino, Calif.

The equipment acquired by SteelCo includes: three 60-inch-wide precision multi-blanking lines from Red Bud and Herr Voss, a Stamco/Wean 60-inch-wide slitting line with multiple off-line slitting heads, a 51-inch-wide Stamco slitting line, multiple overhead cranes and Cincinnati shears. The company is in the process of relocating the equipment to its Chino and Rialto, Calif., facilities.

SteelCo USA, founded in 2007, is a division of West Coast Steel & Processing.
