The Ryerson Centralia service center located at 3010 Harrison Ave. continues with its construction of its 215,000-square-foot facility, with a hoped-for start-up date in the second quarter of this year. When it opens, Ryerson Centralia will employ about 50 to 60 employees initially with possibilities for expansion.
Once operational, Ryerson will produce aluminum, stainless steel and carbon steel into plates, sheets, bars and tube products. Ryerson is a leading value-added processor and distributor of industrial metals, with operations in the United States, Canada, Mexico, and China. Founded in 1842, Ryerson has around 3,900 employees in approximately 100 locations.
