Mill Steel Acquires Prassas Metal Products

Written by Tim Triplett

Mill Steel Co. has strengthened its geographic footprint in the South and West with the acquisition of Los Angeles-based Prassas Metal Products. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

“When favorable opportunities such as this present, our aggressive acquisition strategy allows us to transact quickly to the benefit of our customers,” said Mill Steel President and Chairman Pam Heglund.

Mill Steel will immediately assume steel processing and supply for PMP’s broad array of construction industry customers in the southeastern, mid-south and western United States. The transition will be seamless as Mill Steel will uphold existing contracts and leverage its 60-plus years of steel processing expertise to provide exemplary service, Heglund said.

Retiring PMP CEO Jim Prassas will take on a consulting role with Mill Steel as the business assets are integrated.

Mill Steel, based in Grand Rapids, Mich., is one of the nation’s largest distributors of flat rolled carbon steel. Prassas Metal Products is a steel trading and stocking distributor of pre-painted and coated coil products.
