Ryerson Opens Second Facility in Salt Lake City
Ryerson Inc., a major processor and distributor of metals in North America and China, has opened its newest distribution facility in Salt Lake City, Utah. The new 54,000-square-foot warehouse began operations in September and is centrally located in the Salt Lake City business district.
The facility will house a large offering of long products and also will serve as the hub for these products to the rest of Ryerson’s branches in the western U.S. In addition to long products, it also will stock a wide variety of other shapes in carbon, aluminum and stainless steel. The processing capabilities include several new pieces of equipment for bar cutting, aluminum plate sawing and sheet sheering.
“Our newest location allows us to better meet the needs of our customers in and around the Salt Lake City metropolitan area. We will be offering same-day delivery and same-day will call to allow our customers greater access to one of the largest inventories of long products in the West,” said Roger Cundick, general manager.
This is Ryerson’s second expansion in the area. In April 2009, Ryerson opened a 40,000-square-foot facility in Clearfield, Utah. “Our Clearfield facility will continue to house our plate and plate processing capabilities, including our high-def plasma," Cundick said. "Ryerson is committed to Utah and the surrounding markets, and we will continue to expand with our customers' needs."
In addition to the new Salt Lake City service center, Ryerson also has opened a new plate processing facility in Eldridge, Iowa, and is in the process of opening a new service center in Tijuana, Mexico, and a new bar products depot in Houston.
