Marmon/Keystone Completes Construction of New Facility in Pennsylvania

11/29/2013 - A ribbon cutting ceremony was recently held at Marmon/Keystone's new McConnellsburg, Pa., metals service center, which officially opened for business on 1 November.

The 40,000-square-foot facility at 196 Secrist Spring Lane took four and a half months to construct. It is approximately 25% larger than the former building, which is located within the same business park. The facility features four 5-ton, dual-hoist overhead cranes and five high-speed band saws, which are used to supply tubing and chrome bar to the heavy-equipment manufacturing industry.

"We are very pleased to be able to make this investment and increase our capacity in McConnellsburg. It represents our commitment to support local manufacturing," reported value added manager Tim Wamba, who oversees the operation.

A leading wholesale distributor of tubular products for over 100 years, Marmon/Keystone inventories more than 15,000 sizes and grades of carbon, alloy, stainless and aluminum tubular and bar products. Marmon/​Keystone also offers a full range of value added services to enhance manufacturing needs. Service centers and sales offices are located throughout North America, with corporate headquarters in Butler, Pa.

Marmon/Keystone LLC and affiliated businesses are Marmon Distribution Services/Berkshire Hathaway companies and members of The Marmon Group, an international association of more than 150 business units that operate independently within diverse business sectors.
