Castle to Consolidate Bar Processing Operations
A.M. Castle will relocate bar processing operations from its Franklin Park, Ill., and Minneapolis locations to a new facility in Janesville, Wis. The company has signed a lease agreement for the new facility, with operations expected to begin in the fourth quarter.
“This move is one of the centerpieces of the restructuring plan we announced in April,” says Steve Scheinkman, president and CEO. “We have already created a plate processing center of excellence in our Cleveland facility, and are excited to add a consolidated bar processing center in the new Janesville facility that our network can leverage in the future.”
The new 208,000-square-foot facility is located at 3800 Enterprise Drive in Janesville. Castle is in the process of building it out to accommodate its bar processing needs.
“A top priority throughout this time of change is to ensure that our customers experience a seamless transition as we restructure the company to better serve and support them. The relocation of our bar processing hub will enhance our ability to provide metal products, services and processing capabilities at the highest levels of quality and customer satisfaction,” Scheinkman says.
