Leeco Steel, Lisle, Ill., has expanded its plate distribution capabilities in Canada with the opening of a new, larger distribution center in Hamilton, Ontario. Leeco has relocated to a new 45,000-square-foot facility at 20 Myler St., in Hamilton.
“As we’ve expanded our customer base in Canada, we outgrew our original warehouse,” said Denton Nordhues, president and CEO of Leeco Steel, an O’Neal Industries affiliate company. “Our new facility is much larger and allows us to house a more extensive plate inventory and provide improved service to enable our team to get Canadian customers the plate they need faster.”
The new facility, which has three employees, is accessible by rail and truck and will serve customers throughout Canada. Leeco Steel currently has one Canada-based facility and a total of 11 distribution facilities throughout North America.
