Alro Steel Acquires Metal Stock in Philadelphia
US distributor Alro Steel announced the acquisition of Metal Stock in Philadelphia in Pennsylvania. Metal Stock was established in 1994 as a full-service metal distributor serving Eastern Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware. This asset purchase will allow Alro to grow customer base while providing improved service for cut-to-size metals and plastics.
Alro Steel will continue to service customers out of the Metal Stock location at 4901 Cottman Avenue, Philadelphia, PA 19135.
Alro is a distributor of metals, industrial supplies, and plastics. Beginning in 1948, Alro Steel was incorporated in a small garage in Jackson, Michigan. The name "Al-Ro" was derived from the first two letters from brothers Al & Robert Glick. Al began the company during a steel shortage in the 1940's which was due to the military demands of World War II. Al found a niche matching up companies with steel needs to companies with excess steel. Today, Alro has grown to over 70 locations in 12 states. Alro processes and distributes metals, plastics and industrial supplies with next day delivery to over 25,000 customers in North America.
