Las Vegas, Nevada-based Roadrunner Steel, Inc., a sister company of Performance Steel, Inc. announced Wednesday that it is constructing an approximately 100,000-square-foot rail served, slitting, leveling, and distribution warehouse on over eight acres in Glendale, Arizona. Performance Steel is an international distributor of carbon steel coils, sheets and blanks.
The new facility will house a 60″ Braner turret head slitter and a 72″ Delta leveling line equipped with a trapezoid shear. The Glendale location will have a 12-car rail spot and will have the capacity to slit and level over 200,000 tons annually.
“The project is well under way, and is scheduled to be completed and operational by October 2013,” stated Jim Russell, Vice President of Performance Steel, Inc. and Roadrunner Steel, Inc.
“The geographic location will enable us to provide practical supply solutions to our Western United States and Mexico customer base,” added Russell. “The addition of the leveler will enhance our position in the sheet market, and allow us to compete more effectively for customers using both coil and sheet products in their processes.”
