Advanced Manufacturer Invests in New Facility in St. Joseph, Missouri

O’Neal Steel, an advanced manufacturer and supplier of a wide range of carbon and alloy steel, stainless steel, and aluminum products for companies nationwide, recently announced plans to invest in Missouri and grow with a new facility in St. Joseph.

“This announcement shows that even in the midst of COVID-19 there are still good things happening and Missouri is still a top location for businesses,” said Missouri Governor Mike Parson. “We are proud that O’Neal Steel has chosen St. Joseph for its next distribution facility. O’Neal Steel’s expansion to Missouri will support multiple industries statewide and show that our state remains a prime location for leading companies.”

The 64,000 sq. ft. facility will initially employ up to eight employees, running two shifts. O’Neal Steel will offer wholesale metal distribution, along with select processing capabilities, from the new facility.

“We are thrilled about our expansion into the St. Joseph market,” said Stephen Armstrong, President and CEO of O’Neal Steel. “This new facility opening aligns with growing demand in the area, and we are extremely well positioned to support that demand. This opening is another step toward our company’s long-term growth strategy and directly reflects our recent market share growth in the metal service center industry.”
