Alliance Steel recently announced plans to invest $19.7 million to establish operations in Gary, Indiana. The investment will include purchasing and equipping a 250,000-square-foot facility as well as creating up to 130 new jobs by 2023. The company, which started in Bedford Park, Illinois, currently employs approximately 100 associates.
"Northwest Indiana and Gary are making all the right moves to recreate a very promising industrial area, and Alliance Steel hopes to be one of the cornerstones that provides a track for this new cycle," said Andy Gross, president and CEO of Alliance Steel.
The new facility will allow Alliance Steel to expand its flat-rolled steel supply and coil processing and to grow its customer demand within the automotive, construction, agriculture, transportation, energy, material handling and appliance industries. The company plans to begin renovations in early 2019 and expects to be operational in northwest Indiana by January 2020.
With the expansion, Alliance Steel anticipates increasing its workforce training on new equipment and adding drivers to handle the extra volume. The company will be hiring a number of different positions. Interested applicants may contact the company online.
A leader in flat-rolled steel supply and coil processing for nearly 20 years, Alliance Steel manufactures various types of steel including hot-rolled, cold-rolled, coated, pre-paint and stainless.
