CEMCO Steel Announces New Facility in Ft. Worth, TX

CEMCO is proud to announce that it has secured a facility outside of Ft. Worth, TX to better service Texas and the surrounding markets. Full scale manufacturing is expected to begin in early November, and will be overseen by newly promoted operations manager Chad Rodgers, who is arriving to the new facility from CEMCO’s Denver plant. Leading the sales efforts is regional sales manager Craig Baldwin who has handled the Texas market for CEMCO over the past few years. Joining Craig is CEMCO’s newest hire, Rocky Thomas, an experienced sales professional previously based in Denver, CO. Inside sales will be handled by newly hired Justin Miller who will be relocating from southern California.

Craig, Rocky and their team of sales and customer service representatives is looking forward to expanding CEMCO as the premier source for mill certified prime steel framing and metal lath products to the south central region. “We are very excited to increase the level of service and quality to our customer base in Texas” says Tom Porter, executive vice president. “We have been servicing that market for years and it was just a natural move to locate a plant in Texas for our long term growth plans.”
