Penn Stainless Products Opens Mercer Distribution Center

JACKSON TOWNSHIP, Pa. – Penn Stainless Products will begin deliveries Monday along routes throughout western Pennsylvania and eastern Ohio from its new, 35,000-square-foot transfer and distribution hub here.

From the new Mercer County distribution center, PSP can deliver stainless product to customers in a few days or less. Product will be shipped from its Quakertown plant and then distributed by Penn Stainless trucks from the new transfer facility, the company said.

Total investment in the project was not disclosed. Thomas Construction of Grove City was the general contractor. Penn-Northwest Development Corp. provided assistance with site selection, permit allocation and contract development.

“We are pleased to announce the completion of the Jackson Center facility. We are in a much better position to service and support our customers as a result of this commitment,” said Jim Seward, president of Penn Stainless Products, in a statement. “With our own fleet drivers, we exercise greater control and increase our delivery capabilities in the region.”

Penn Stainless Products, founded in 1979 and based in Quakertown, Pa., is a full-line stainless steel distributor and processor. The Mercer County distribution center is centrally located among the Pittsburgh, Erie, Akron and Cleveland areas, within just a few miles of the I-79-I-80 interchange.
