Alro Acquires Metal Stock, Extends Reach in Mid-Atlantic

Written by David Schollaert

Alro Steel Corp. has acquired Metal Stock, a Philadelphia-based service center and distributor of steel and plastic products. This asset purchase will allow Alro to grow its customer base while providing improved service for cut-to-size metals and plastics, the company said.

Established in 1994 as a full-service metal distributor, Metal Stocks serves Eastern Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware. The acquisition strengthens Alro Steel’s reach in the Mid-Atlantic and beefs up its position across the Keystone state.

Jackson, Mich.-based Alro is North America’s seventh largest metals processor with revenues of $1.9 billion in 2020. The company operates more than 70 locations in 12 states, distributing a full range of metals, industrial supplies and engineering plastics. Alro has a tailor-made, cut-to-size offering for metals and plastics with next-day delivery to 25,000 customers in North America.
