NEW CASTLE, Pa. (PRWEB) April 27, 2018
The 52,000-square foot expansion will double Steelite’s current warehouse space and feature additional loading/receiving docks. The new facility will also provide areas for some light manufacturing & finishing processes.
From this location, Steelite supplies tabletop products from over 30 production partners throughout the world, and distributes to the entire western hemisphere, supporting over 60% of its global customer base out of New Castle, PA. The facility will operate as a US Customs approved Foreign Trade Zone, providing increased distribution efficiencies to the markets it supports.
In conjunction with this expansion, Steelite will also be building a state of the art showroom. The 15,000-square foot space will be located on the fifth floor of the Commerce Building in Youngstown, OH. It will feature a state of the art demo kitchen and training facility and is poised to be the largest hospitality tableware showroom in the world, becoming a destination resource for any restauranteur looking for innovative tabletop & buffet offerings.
These projects are two examples of how Steelite has been investing in local areas to help support its continual growth in the marketplace and ensure it's position as a global market leader in the hospitality industry.
“We continue to invest heavily in the business globally to secure the future for the business and our employees. The sign of any good business is reinvesting profits back into the business,” Said John Miles, CEO of Steelite International.
