Schuff Steel Company Completes Purchase of Steel Fabrication Facility in Stockton, CA
Schuff Steel Company, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Schuff International, Inc., has completed an asset purchase for a steel fabrication plant and certain other assets from California-based Strocal, Inc. Schuff Steel, the largest steel fabricator and erector in the United States, completed the transaction on December 4, 2009. This strategic purchase will increase Schuff\'s steel fabrication capacity, further enhancing their presence in the Northern California market and supporting additional regional and end-market growth.
Located approximately 65 miles from Oakland, CA, the Stockton plant sits on 30 acres of land with 121,500 square-feet under roof. Schuff expects an annual capacity of more than 25,000 tons of specialty fabricated steel from this facility.
With the addition of this new facility in Stockton, Schuff enhances its ability to service the Bay Area, as well as expand their presence in the Pacific Northwest. Also, due to its proximity to the Port of Stockton, this location opens more possibilities for Schuff to pursue projects overseas.
"Schuff Steel is very excited about the Stockton, CA facility and the potential it brings," said Ryan Schuff, president and CEO of Schuff Steel Company. "This is an ideal location for our efforts on the West Coast, especially the Bay Area, and also provides a springboard for us to grow our presence in the Pacific Northwest. Contractors and owners alike understand the cost and schedule advantages of bringing Schuff on-board early to assist with pre-construction design, engineering and cost analysis. In particular, our clients continue to seek our expertise in Design-Assist, Design-Build and 3D/Building Information Modeling (BIM). We continue to offer our clients innovative structural steel solutions at a level unmatched in the industry."
Including this latest purchase, Schuff International, Inc. owns and operates ten steel fabrication plants and two steel joist manufacturing plants. Companies are located in Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Kansas, Nevada, and Texas.
