Written by Tim Triplett

Material Sciences Corporation has joined the North American Steel Alliance. MSC becomes the 121st member of NASA, a purchasing cooperative based in Chicago.

MSC provides advanced solutions in metals, metal products and metal processing across a diverse array of end-use markets. Its specialties include electrogalvanizing, continuous coil-coating, laminating, acoustic composites and supply chain management.

“One of the key factors influencing our decision to invest as a member/owner of NASA was the opportunity to engage in meaningful dialogue with so many diverse companies that are part of the industries we serve,” said Michael Noble, MSC Chief Commercial Officer.

Headquartered in Canton, Mich., MSC has operations in Elk Grove Village, Ill.; East Chicago, Ind.; Walbridge, Ohio; Canfield, Ohio; and Toronto, Ontario.

NASA is comprised of 121 independently operated steel service centers throughout the United States and Canada with over 430 distribution and processing facilities. Collectively, NASA represents annual revenues exceeding $9 billion dollars.
