At The Korte Company, we understand the complexities of designing and building manufacturing plants. We’ve completed more than 2,000 projects nationwide, including the start-to-finish construction of the biggest industrial plants. This plant expansion project for Heidtman Steel is some of our finest work.
Heidtman Steel was formed in 1954 by Fredrick William Heidtman. The small, family-owned operation offered only leveling and shearing services when it incorporated in 1962.
Over the next few decades, the Ohio-based company gradually expanded its capabilities, investing in equipment and acquiring or building additional service center facilities in the nation’s leading industrial centers.
Throughout the ‘80s and ‘90s, Heidtman dramatically expanded the size and scope of its operations and chose The Korte Company to deliver their recent plant expansions. When Heidtman Steel broke ground on their new processing facility and office, they already had plans for a second phase. We were awarded the first building project and three additional construction projects.
Heidtman found pre-engineered buildings ideally suited to their industrial needs. The main building has a 30-foot eave height to accommodate two 30-ton cranes. The office exterior is brick veneer with floor-to-ceiling windows. Each of the three additions were also pre-engineered.
Today, the company operates facilities in Indiana, Illinois, Michigan and Ohio, serving hundreds of customers across a variety of industries from automotive, truck and bus manufacturers to furniture, appliances and HVAC and other steel service centers.
We’re proud to build for quality producers throughout the U.S. Learn more about our plant expansion and construction services here.
