24 October 2018
Bridger Steel, a leading supplier of metal roofing, siding, and interior metal panel systems, is expanding to improve its supply chain with the addition of facilities in Kalama, Washington State and Denver, Colorado.
The company reported it is expanding its manufacturing presence to reduce costs and improve efficiencies in spite of ongoing steel tariff challenges; “While rising freight costs and steel tariffs create new challenges in the U.S. steel market, Bridger Steel is using strategic partnerships and planned growth to allow for continued expansion,” officials explained.“Companies need to constantly think about new ways to improve their supply chain, and working with like-minded vendors and partners is a great place to get solid results," said company owner Dennis Johnson, Owner.
On October 8th, Bridger Steel opened the doors at their new Pacific Northwest manufacturing location at the port of Kalama in southern Washington. With six current locations and another opening soon in Denver, this was not the first time Bridger Steel has expanded its presence. What made this opening unique was its proximity to key resources, and the strategic cooperation of local and national partners.
By placing their location next to core vendors, the new facility was able to reduce costs related to logistics and improve timelines across their entire company, translating to improved pricing and service for their customers across the country, officials explained.
