Leeco moves to larger Canadian plate facility

North American service centre chain Leeco Steel is shifting its Hamilton, Ontario, plate distribution operations to a larger facility, Kallanish reports. 

The new 45,000-square-foot facility replaces a smaller Hamilton facility Leeco has operated since 2014. Leeco currently maintains one service centre in Canada, one in Mexico, and nine in the US. 

Financial terms for the new facility were not disclosed. The new facility will employee three people, Leeco says. 

“As we’ve expanded our customer base in Canada, we outgrew our original warehouse,” says Leeco ceo Denton Nordhues. “Our new facility is much larger and allows us to house a more extensive plate inventory and provide improved service to enable our team to get Canadian customers the plate they need faster.”
