Samuel Strengthens Midwest Presence

Canada’s Samuel, Son & Co., Ltd., has acquired Basic Stainless Inc., a service center operating from an 80,000-square-foot facility in Marshfield, Wis., with branches in Green Bay and Minneapolis. Basic Stainless will continue Samuel’s expansion into the U.S. market, says Wayne Bassett, Samuel president and CEO.

Basic Stainless will operate as Basic Stainless, a division of Samuel, Son & Co., Inc. Jim Young, the former owner, will serve as general manager, reporting to Al Bromley, president of Samuel, Son & Co. Inc. The addition of Basic Stainless will bring to seven the number of Samuel locations in the Midwest region.

Basic Stainless will immediately expand its current inventory of stainless sheet, plate, bar, pipe and tube, as well as aluminum products in grades of 3003, 5052 and 5086. In the near future, it will also add carbon flat-rolled products such as coated and pre-paint, the company says.

“Samuel brings a significant supply chain and product expertise to Basic Stainless, which when combined with their existing customer base and sales experience will serve to increase and strengthen our presence in the Midwest,” Bassett adds.

Samuel is a family owned business founded in 1855 and is the 5th largest metal processor and distributor in North America. Samuel has over 4,100 employees operating from 48 service centers and 47 manufacturing plants in North America, as well as facilities in the UK, Australia and China. Samuel service centers carry a full range of carbon flat rolled, carbon plate, stainless steel and aluminum products. In addition, the manufacturing group offers many value-added products including engineered stainless and carbon tubing, roll forming, strapping and pressure vessel tanks.
