Worthington Industries has acquired a pickling and slitting facility in Cleveland from Heidtman Steel Products. The facility is 278,000 square feet.
“Heidtman’s Cleveland operation is a great addition to our steel business, further expanding our value-added steel processing capacity," said Worthington Industries chairman and CEO John McConnell. “The addition of Cleveland will strengthen our pickling capabilities and allow us to expand our presence in an attractive market.”
Heidtman’s facility, constructed in 2004, includes pickling and slitting of hot-rolled carbon flat rolled steel for the automotive, heavy truck, agriculture and heavy equipment markets and is adjacent to the ArcelorMittal steel mill. The facility employs approximately 100 people.
The facility will complement Worthington’s network of facilities in northeast Ohio, including its cold-rolled steel processing facility in Cleveland and Samuel Steel Pickling Company, a joint venture, in Cleveland and Twinsburg, Ohio, Worthington executives said.
