Worthington Industries Inc. has acquired Heidtman Steel Products Inc.’s pickling and slitting facility located in Cleveland.  

“Heidtman’s Cleveland operation is a great addition to our steel business, further expanding our value-added steel processing capacity," Worthington Industries Chairman & CEO John McConnell said in a statement. “The addition of Cleveland will strengthen our pickling capabilities and allow us to expand our presence in an attractive market.”

Heidtman’s 278,000 square-foot facility, constructed in 2004, includes pickling and slitting of hot rolled carbon flat rolled steel for the automotive, heavy truck, agriculture and heavy equipment markets and is adjacent to the ArcelorMittal steel mill.

The facility is non-union and employs approximately 100 people. It will complement Columbus-based Worthington’s network of facilities in Northeast Ohio, including its cold rolled steel processing facility in Cleveland and Samuel Steel Pickling Co., a joint venture, in Cleveland and Twinsburg.

Worthington Industries is a leading global diversified metals manufacturing company with 2019 fiscal year net sales of $3.8 billion.
