CHICAGO, Ill. (June 6, 2016) — JMC Steel Group has announced that it is changing its corporate name and identity to Zekelman Industries Inc.
Zekelman Industries is the parent company of Atlas Tube, Wheatland Tube, Sharon Tube, Picoma and Energex Tube. Each of these business units will continue to operate under its existing brand name.
“The change of name and identity signifies my, and my family’s, commitment to our business, customers, team members and suppliers. I am proud of the work we do and honored to have my name associated with the products and services we provide,” said Barry Zekelman, CEO of Zekelman Industries.
Zekelman Industries is a leading value-added metal processor. Its focus is on providing superior customer service through the timely delivery of high-quality, high-value industrial products. The company is committed to the continuous improvement of its best-in-class customer service and manufacturing processes.
To this end, Zekelman Industries is constantly investing in its systems and facilities. Most recently, the company completed its “Phoenix” project at the Wheatland Division’s Council Avenue facility. This investment has improved product delivery, quality and throughput. Additionally, Zekelman Industries’ recent investment in VectorBloc (a modular construction design system) is a step toward expanding the company’s product lines and manufacturing capabilities.
“Zekelman Industries will continue to stay focused on innovation and excellence as we move forward,” said Zekelman. “The future is very bright for Zekelman Industries!”
