Capital Improvements

As a private, family-owned company, Charter Steel focuses on long-term, strategic objectives. Our conservative and consistent approach to management and innovation has ensured our customers a reliable supply of quality steel for more than two decades.

Charter Steel has been quietly investing more than $600 million in new facilities and capital improvements over the last ten years. These include:

  • The March 2002 acquisition of Birmingham Steel's American Steel and Wire division in Cuyahoga Heights, Ohio, which increased Charter Steel's coil-making capacity to approximately 1.2 million tons annually.

  • The March 2002 completion of a major expansion of the Saukville rolling mill that allows Charter Steel to roll bar sizes to 1-3/8" (34.9 mm) in diameter.
  • The November 2000 addition of a carbon and alloy coil processing and distribution facility in Fostoria, Ohio.

  • The January 2000 expansion of Charter Steel's Saukville processing facility, which included the opening of a third chemical cleaning/coating facility, the addition of two continuous annealing furnaces and the expansion of Charter Steel's wire-making capabilities.
