Mainline Metals Acquires Great South Metals

Written by Becca Moczygemba

Pennsylvania steel distributor Mainline Metals has acquired Great South Metals, a service center located in Acworth, Ga.

Mainline Metals seeks to sweeten its position as a leading nationwide provider of prime, secondary, and excess steel with the Peach State service center’s capabilities. Great South’s machinery includes a 60-inch Pro-Eco loop slitter, a 48-inch Turner loop slitter, an 18-inch Wean slitting line, a 72-inch McKay cut-to-length, and 10–14-foot Cincinnati Shears.

The first order of business for Great South Metals includes the implementation of new technologies and sourcing strategies. Presently, the company’s strategic focus is growth and this investment will expand the company’s value-added services.

“This partnership presents the perfect opportunity for Great South Metals to leverage Mainline Metals’ robust industry knowledge. At the same time, Great South Metals’ expertise in the prime steel market and supply chain programs enhances Mainline Metals’ capabilities to serve its customers and engage more deeply in the prime market. This is a mutually beneficial agreement for both companies and our customers,” said Andrew Geisler, president of Mainline Metals.
