Eddie Kane Opens Plate Facility in Alabama

Eddie Kane Steel Products Inc. is opening a distribution facility in Tuscaloosa, Ala. The new sales, warehouse and distribution center will allow the company to better serve its hot-rolled carbon steel plate customers in the South, officials say.

The 10,000-square-foot facility is set on five acres of land in the city. The operation is currently stocked with burning machines with plans for additional plate processing equipment to be added later.

“This latest expansion of Eddie Kane Steel in central Alabama means significant freight savings for our customers in the southern U.S. and Mexico, which is absolutely important to fabricators and processors as fuel prices, as well as raw material prices, continue to rise,” says Gus Kane, company president. “This strategically located facility will also mean faster delivery times for many of the company’s customers.”

With its new facility, the Spring Lake, N.J-based company has sales, distribution and processing centers in Masury, Ohio; Los Angeles; Hertford County, N.C.; Chicago; and Alabama. 

Kane pointed out that the opening of the Tuscaloosa facility represents a critical move in solidifying Eddie Kane Steel’s presence in the South and one that has been in the planning stages for years. 

“Eddie Kane Steel’s growth across the U.S. in the last three years is part of the company’s plan to establish and strengthen strategic relationships with mill suppliers and our customers. We have also been increasing our inventory and processing capacities at each of our locations,” Kane says.
