Olympic to expand CTI operation

Keywords: Tags  Olympic Steel, Chicago Tube & Iron, pipe and tube, Michael Siegal, Rick Marabito

NEW YORK — Olympic Steel Inc. plans to expand the St. Paul, Minn., facility of its Chicago Tube & Iron Co. (CTI) subsidiary this year.

"To allow for continued growth, we will be enlarging and enhancing that location," chairman and chief executive officer Michael Siegal said during the company’s fourth-quarter earnings conference call.

He noted that the expansion to 130,000 square feet from 90,000 square feet will provide additional crank capacity and better throughput capabilities.

The expansion comes as the company’s tubular and pipe products segment contributed to better margins for the Bedford Heights, Ohio-based metal service center quarter over quarter, chief financial officer Rick Marabito said.

Olympic completed its acquisition of CTI in summer 2011 (, July 5, 2011).
