Local Steel Company Honored

(July 1, 2013) Tucker, Georgia — SteelMart Inc. is pleased to announce the DeKalb Chamber of Commerce named them Corporate Business of the Year. SteelMart received this award at the county’s Apex Award ceremony held June 12th at the Marriott Century Center in Atlanta. SteelMart was awarded as a business in the $10-$20 million dollar category. This honor is the culmination of what has been a banner year for the steel products company.

SteelMart, located in Tucker, Georgia, warehouses and sells angles, channels, tubes, pipes, plates, sheets, flats, expanded metals, beams, ornamental iron, decking and other products. The company’s services include shearing, forming, saw cutting, punching, drilling and plate burning.

The company was founded in 1993 and moved to its new 60,000 square foot Tucker facility in 2012. The move gave them the opportunity to consolidate several of their operations, as well as expand their capabilities. The move allowed the company to continue to grow, with a record year in sales and the addition of over 20 new employees.

“This really has been an amazing year,” states co-owner Brian Satisky. “We took a huge risk moving our company and opening our new facility, but were able to continue to grow and continue to give back to the county. Being recognized for our efforts is really a huge honor.”

SteelMart received this award as recognition for the positive impact they’ve had on the county. Over the past year, the company revitalized an old plant — turning it from an empty property to a thriving business, while adding needed jobs. In addition to helping the community through their business efforts, SteelMart’s co-owners give back by being actively involved in the community and currently sit on four community boards.

“We built this company on honesty and integrity; it is what we expect from our employees and what our customers expect from us. This award demonstrates that good beliefs can result in good business,” says co-partner Paul Carling.

SteelMart continues to grow their business and plans on contributing to DeKalb County with jobs, growth and community well into the future.
