Keywords: Tags  Leeco Steel, O'Neal Industries, Denton Nordhues, service center, steel plate


CHICAGO — Leeco Steel LLC, which processes and distributes carbon, high-strength low-alloy, heat-treated and alloy plate steel, has opened a service center in Hamilton, Ontario, its first in Canada.

The 30,000-square-foot, climate-controlled facility, which will begin shipping steel plate by the end of March, includes an indoor rail siding, three 50-ton overhead cranes, one 30-ton forklift and three 15,000-pound forklifts.

"Establishing a location in Hamilton places our plate steel closer to where it needs to be and, therefore, eases the pressure on freight," Leeco president Denton Nordhues said in a statement.

Lisle, Ill.-based Leeco Steel is a subsidiary of O’Neal Industrial Metals Group, Birmingham, Ala.
