Expansion and Specialty Metals CTL Line in Schaumburg

Our Newest CTL Line

“We believe the investment, which includes the facility expansion and equipment, was worth every penny and will provide expanded returns to the company and our employees.”

You might say that things are bigger and better these days for Olympic Steel in Schaumburg, IL – located just outside of Chicago. That’s because, back in October 2018, this location unveiled its 42,000 square foot facility expansion, which included a new specialty metals Cut to Length (CTL) line and new sheet storage racks.

Rick Marabito, Olympic Steel’s CEO, says “We believe the investment, which includes the facility expansion and equipment, was worth every penny and will provide expanded returns to the company and our employees.”

There are many advantages to expanding the location’s size and capabilities but the most significant is that it offers the ability to separate white metals from carbon steel. This is important because it eliminates the chance of cross-contamination.

Those who are mechanically minded might like to know about the new equipment’s specs. It includes a new Herr Voss Leveling CTL line and new sheet racks:

  • 1/4” x 75 Herr Voss Leveling Cut to Length Line – dedicated to stainless steel processing
  • Thickness range .018” -.250”
  • Width range 18” -72”And, the expansion is kind of a big deal in the industry. It was featured in the July issue of Modern Metals!
