Michigan-based distributor Mill Steel is growing its presence in Ohio.
The company announced on Tuesday its purchase of a 90,000-square-foot facility in Mansfield, Ohio. The new facility is in close proximity to Cleveland-Cliffs’ Mansfield Works. It will support business from Mill Steel’s acquisition of Cleveland Metal Exchange that took place earlier this year.
“The proximity to our customer base and geographic benefits made this an excellent
opportunity. I look forward to the additional capacity this provides to support our double-digit
growth,” Pam Heglund, CEO of Mill Steel, said in a statement.
The new facility is equipped with a 72” Pro Eco Slitting Line, a 60” Paxson Slitting Line, and
a 50-foot-deep looping pit.
The company also has plans to add cut-to-length processing capabilities.
Additionally, Mill Steel said it is making an $18-million investment into its Detroit location.
The upgrades include a new slitting line, new pack line, two new cranes, and 50,000 square feet of warehouse space. The updates are set to be complete sometime in 2024, the company said.
