A steel processor has moved its headquarters to Gary, leaving behind its former site in the Chicago suburb of Bedford Park, and bringing 100 jobs to Indiana.
Our partners at The Times of Northwest Indiana report Alliance Steel is completing a move that was first announced in 2017.
The steel service center, which specializes in coil processing and flat-rolled steel supply, moved into the former ATCO-Gary Metals Technologies plant.
The paper said ATCO closed in 2018, following the death of its owner.
Alliance Steel said it expects to finish operations in Illinois by mid-2020.
“We are extremely excited to begin the next chapter of Alliance Steel at our new state of the art offices and processing facility,” Alliance Steel Corporate Vice President Drew Gross said. “We have put ourselves in a highly strategic position for continued growth with proximity to the Northwest Indiana mills as well as several major ports.”
Alliance Steel now occupies a 290,000-square-foot building across from the Gary Works integrated steel mill in downtown Gary that includes warehouses and processing.
The steel distributor and service center also has locations in Atlanta and Memphis.
