Churchill Steel Sets Up Shop in Former Oliver Plate Facility
Twinsburg, Ohio, is home to a new steel plate startup with roots that date back 35 years. Industry veterans Jim Fleming and Kirk Mooney have launched Churchill Steel Plate Ltd. in the building that formerly housed Oliver Steel. Another service center vet, Jim Stevenson, will manage the operation as president.

The 120,000-square-foot service center stocks carbon and alloy plate and offers a variety of in-house processing services, including flame cutting, saw cutting, heat treatment and grinding. Its plate inventory includes grades A36 to 15-inches thick, 1045 to 8-inches thick, 4140/4142 to 8 ¼-inches thick and 4340 to 7 ¼-inches thick. The company will serve customers throughout North America.

The relationship between Churchill Steel co-owners Mooney and Fleming dates back to 1978 when they founded Oliver Steel. They sold the service center to A.M. Castle in 1998, but retained ownership of the building. When Castle decided last year to integrate Oliver into its plate unit and vacate the building, the pair decided to get back into the plate business.

"When Oliver moved out, we were left with a specialty building. It was built specifically to process steel plate. We figured if we were going to have to spend hundreds of thousands to change the building for a different type of tenant, we might as well spend it on inventory and equipment and go back and do what we know how to do," Mooney says.
