Keywords: Tags  Leeco Steel, service center, steel plate, Denton Nordhues, O'Neal Industrial Metals Group

CHICAGO — Leeco Steel LLC has opened a warehouse in Mobile, Ala., as part of a larger effort to establish a physical presence in strategic U.S. markets.

The Lisle, Ill.-based steel service center, a division of Birmingham, Ala.-based O’Neal Industrial Metals Group, said the Mobile warehouse began shipping plate steel this month.

"The Southeast is home to an active and diverse manufacturing industry that has a big appetite for plate steel," Leeco Steel president and chief executive officer Denton Nordhues said. "We are establishing deeper roots in an area we already supply from other locations. Mobile allows us to realize efficiencies in our supply chain and commercial coverage that will ignite further expansion in the Gulf."
