SIJ Group, a steel manufacturer with its U.S. headquarters in Red Bank, acquired a 35,000-square-foot warehouse facility in Romeoville, Ill.
The warehouse is fully operational as of Aug. 1 and stocked with stainless and tool steel products to distribute throughout the U.S. and Canada.
SIJ Americas is the the North American distribution arm of SIJ Group, a Slovenian metal company. SIJ Americas stocks forged plate and long products made at the SIJ Metal Ravne mill location and quarto plates made at the SIJ Acroni mill location.
“Our new Romeoville warehouse allows us to expand our U.S. based inventory, thus improving material availability for all of our stocking distributor customers,” said SIJ Americas President Andrew Towey. “In addition to greater material availability, we have also been able to expand our product range for stainless bar grades, which now include 440C, 420, and 17-4 rounds and flats.”
“As we prepare to open our new mill depot warehouse, our team continues the fundamentals of being a great partner to our stocking distributor customers,” said Towey. “We’re committed to providing high quality, proactive customer service and a mutually beneficial, long-term approach. The character of the SIJ brand will be communicated through action, transparency, and continually delivering on our promises, with every customer, every time.”
