Triple-S Expands in Mid-Atlantic Region

Written by Tim Triplett

In its latest acquisition, Triple-S Steel Supply Co., Houston, has purchased BMG Metals, a steel distributor and metal superstore with five stocking locations throughout Virginia and Maryland.

hand shakeSteve Briggeman, a 21-year veteran of Triple-S, has been promoted to regional vice president. A resident of Knoxville, Tenn., Briggeman will oversee the new BMG business in addition to the Knoxville branch.

BMG Metals supplies carbon steel, stainless and aluminum. Its processing services include plasma cutting and burning, plus sawing and shearing.

“Steel distribution is what we love, and we welcome the opportunity to meet new friends and customers in one of the birthplaces of the United States. BMG provides a great vehicle to bring what we do best to this region,” said Gary Stein, CEO of Triple-S.

“After taking BMG as far as we could over the past nine years of ownership, Dillon Supply and our parent Descours and Cabaud realized BMG needed to be part of a larger steel organization in order to grow to the next level. Triple-S Steel, with its strong leadership, is the company to do just that,” said Dean Wagoner, president of BMG Metals.

Triple-S Steel Supply is a general line service center with a special emphasis in the construction markets. From its roots in Houston, it has grown throughout North America, Central and South America, and Asia. The company sells nearly 500,000 tons of steel per year.
