Penn Stainless Products to Open Mercer County Distribution Hub
QUAKERTOWN, Pa. – Penn Stainless Products, a distributor and processor of stainless steel products, announced Wednesday that construction of its new 35,000-square-foot distribution and transfer hub in Mercer County is nearly complete.
The new structure sits in Jackson Center near the intersection of interstates 79 and 80, close to the Pittsburgh, Erie, Akron and Cleveland metropolitan areas, Jim Seward, president of Penn Stainless said.
“Penn Stainless has been providing dedicated logistics support to the Western Pennsylvania and Eastern Ohio for the last 10 years,” said Seward in a statement. “This investment strengthens our commitment to the customer base in the region by allowing us to provide better service from a local, central hub.”
When the building opens – projected date is Nov. 1 – the products it holds can easily be shipped on flatbed trailers for next-day delivery as far as Pittsburgh to the south, Erie to the north, Cleveland to the northwest and Akron to the west.
Thomas Construction of Grove City, Pa., is the general contractor. Assistance in site selection, permit allocation and contract development was provided by Penn-Northwest Development Corp.
Penn Stainless, founded in 1979, describes itself as a full-line distributor and processor of stainless steel sheet, plate, bar, structural, pipe and tubular products. It serves domestic and international customers in stainless, high-temperature, corrosion, duplex and PH alloys.
