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

The 278,000 square-foot facility, located adjacent to the ArcelorMittal steel mill, includes pickling and slitting of hot rolled carbon flat rolled steel for the automotive, heavy truck, agriculture and heavy equipment markets.

“Heidtman’s Cleveland operation is a great addition to our Steel business, further expanding our value-added steel processing capacity,” said John McConnell, Worthington Chairman and CEO.

“The addition of Cleveland will strengthen our pickling capabilities and allow us to expand our presence in an attractive market.”

The new facility will complement Worthington’s network of facilities in northeast Ohio, including its cold rolled steel processing facility in Cleveland and Samuel Steel Pickling Company, a joint venture, in Cleveland and Twinsburg, Ohio.
