Steel Technologies completes expansion
KENNETT -- Steel Technologies' Custom Steel Division has completed its addition to the Kennett facility located in the Industrial Park. The addition will double the production of the plant.
"We're very excited about our extended capabilities," said Scott Lowry, director of sales and marketing for the company.
"With the double production capacity and state-of-the-art processing equipment we're now able to serve more markets as well as new customers."
Currently, Steel Technologies' Custom Steel Division produces parts for assembly operations in the railroad industry.
"We're much more than a steel processor," said Gary Bertolucci, vice president/general manager. "We really are an extension of our customer's company, just as concerned with quality and adding to the bottom line as they are."
Bertolucci said the company now has the capacity to maximize its core business, and also pursue opportunities in markets such as trucking, marine, cell towers and more.
Steel Technologies' Custom Steel Division has two manufacturing facilities, Kennett and Wurtland, Ky., with corporate offices in Chesterfield, Mo.
