Ryerson, a North American distributor and processor of metals operating globally in China, North America and Brazil, has declared that its service center based in Columbus, Ohio will be significantly expanded and renovated. The potential and capacity of the center will be further enhanced by its investment in sophisticated plate processing machinery.
Part blasting and deburring capabilities are being added along with equipment that will support high definition machining, drilling/tapping, surface milling, plasma cutting and beveling.
Novel laser measurement equipment will make sure that stringent quality needs of customers are met. According to the President of Ryerson Midwest, Michael Burbach, this investment in Columbus along with its ideal central location in the market will help them to meet customer needs better for finished components and semi-fabricated products.
Being an advanced plate processing center, Ryerson will offer finished components to customers in the central Midwest using its rapid delivery logistics system. The completion of the Ryerson Columbus expansion is expected to be in August 2012.
Ryerson processes and distributes different kinds of metals, which include carbon steel, stainless steel and aluminum products.
