20 July 2018
DBM Global Inc., a family of companies providing fully integrated structural and steel construction services, and an operating subsidiary of HC2 Holdings, Inc., announced today that its subsidiary Schuff Steel Company has completed the acquisition of a steel fabrication facility located in Rock Hill, South Carolina. The 148,000 sq. ft. fabrication facility is located on approximately 45 acres of land with convenient rail access. The company expects the facility to be operational by the fourth quarter of this year.
“Expanding our manufacturing operations to York County, South Carolina through this acquisition will enhance Schuff Steel’s fabrication capabilities and capacity in the Eastern Region of the United States,” said Rustin Roach, Chief Executive Officer of DBM Global. “Adding the Rock Hill facility and its painting capabilities to our existing facilities in Albany, Georgia; Humble, Texas; and Ottawa, Kansas, will help us continue to provide our customers across the U.S. with a uniquely comprehensive set of services, which in turn allows us to deliver increased value for our shareholders.”
“We have worked closely with York County and the South Carolina Department of Commerce to secure this agreement, and we thank them for their efforts to facilitate our expansion into South Carolina. We look forward to operating in this area, and intend to hire more than 180 people to work at this facility over the course of the next few years,” added Mr. Roach.
Financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed, but DBM completed the acquisition with cash on hand.
