Worthington Steel completes spinoff, now a standalone company

Written by Laura Miller

Worthington Industries has completed its planned split into two separate companies: Worthington Steel Inc. and Worthington Enterprises Inc.

Worthington Steel is based in Columbus, Ohio, and specializes in carbon flat-rolled steel processing, electrical steel lamination, and tailor welding. It operates 31 facilities in seven states and five countries and employs 4,500 people. Geoff Gilmore is the new company’s CEO.

Worthington Enterprises designs and manufactures building products, consumer products, and sustainable energy solutions. It has 5,000 employees in North America and Europe. Its headquarters are also in Columbus, Ohio.

“Today is a major milestone in Worthington’s history. As separate companies, both Worthington Enterprises and Worthington Steel will be better able to serve their respective customers, deliver on their more focused strategic priorities, and create superior long-term shareholder value,” commented Andy Rose, president and CEO of Worthington Enterprises, in a statement.

Worthington first announced its plans to spin off its steel processing business last year.
