Alliance Steel has relocated its headquarters and production facility to Indiana two years after it first announced the move.
The company had planned to commence operations at the new site in January 2020, when it originally announced the transfer plans in 2018, after Atco Gary Metals, the former company at the site closed its sheet metal processing facility.
The new, almost 300,000 sq. ft. headquarters and production facility, now completed in Gary, will almost double Alliance’s capacity and increase efficiency following its transfer from the Bedford Park, Illinois site. The plant contains 11 new overhead cranes, four major steel processing lines, drive-through bays, receded docks as well as a new electrical system to power the steel processing equipment.
The complete relocation was delayed with COVID-19 adding to the challenges this year, according to media reports. The company is set to continue expanding and has plans to grow from about 150 employees to 200.
Alliance Steel is a flat-rolled steel supplier and coil processer with other locations in Memphis and Atlanta. The company processes and distributes steel used in commercial buildings, offices, and automotive parts, while providing services to customers such as Mercedes-Benz and Blue Bird.
