Rolled Metal Products Acquires Torrington Brass &Amp; Steel
Rolled Metal Products, Inc. has announced the acquisition of Torrington Brass & Steel from The Interwire Group. Torrington Brass & Steel operates a 52,000 square foot plant located in Torrington, CT. The plant serves customers primarily in the New England states with slit and edge conditioned stainless and high carbon steel as well as copper and brass wire and coil.
"Torrington adds a new dimension to our organization by allowing us to better serve national accounts that prefer the convenience of suppliers with multiple plant locations," said Peter McGuire, general manager of Rolled Metal Products' (RMP) Torrington plant. "It also allows us to expand deeper into the northeast and New England markets while adding copper and brass wire and coil to our product line."
The Torrington plant opened in 1965 when it was owned by Robert Brigham. In 1983, ownership passed to Tom Desjardins and John Murphy in an executive buyout. The plant became part of Interwire in 1997.
"The core group of manufacturing personnel have continued with the company over the years so that our experience level is high," added Peter McGuire, RMP Torrington general manager.
Besides its Torrington facility, Rolled Metal Products operates steel service centers in Alsip, IL and Bensalem, PA. The company specializes in stocking and processing stainless steel and aluminum coil products. For additional information, please visit www.rolledmetalproducts.com.
