Greer Steel Opens Service Center in Dover
Greer Steel, a supplier of cold-rolled strip steel, is expanding its headquarters operations in Dover, Ohio, to include full service center capabilities. The expanded facility became operational on March 1.
The expansion includes a 13,000-square-foot addition. With the improvements, the Dover facility is now capable of providing all of the products offered through the company's dedicated Ferndale, Mich., service center location.
In addition to providing strip and stainless products that historically have been offered directly from the Dover location, Greer can now provide a full range of service center quantities to its customers. This will allow the Dover facility to meet not only the needs of customers with traditional mill quantity releases, but also those requiring smaller quantities, the company claims.
The addition to the facility features a new 40,000-pound overhead crane and full radiant floor humidity control for handling and storage of both intermediate processed product and finished goods. This makes the facility well suited for small quantity release and defined stocking programs, the company says. Moreover, this expansion allows Greer to stock a broader range of products in terms of grades, widths, gauges and coil sizes.
"We are confident that our new capabilities will provide increased value and flexibility to our customers," said John R. Raese, president and CEO. "Having our service center capabilities incorporated within our Dover complex will improve our efficiency and ability to service our customers and thereby achieve greater customer satisfaction."
