Banker Steel, an AISC member/AISC certified fabricator headquartered in Lynchburg, Va., has announced the acquisition of Orlando-based Foote Steel Company, also an AISC member/AISC certified fabricator. Following the successful award of several high-profile projects in Alabama, Florida and Georgia, the acquisition represents a strategic decision to further expand and develop market presence throughout the southeast.
Don Banker, CEO of Banker Steel, said, “Having reviewed numerous options in four other states, we wanted to be in Orlando and Foote Steel exemplified the best fit in terms of additional capacity and expertise. We are very excited to bring Foote Steel within the Banker Steel family, as we seek to grow our business and look to create new employment opportunities.”
Rob Glass, Banker Steel’s vice president of industrial sales, will be coordinating the integration and management of Foote Steel.
Primarily serving the east coast, some of Banker’s past and current projects include Washington Nationals Baseball Park, Barclays Center in Brooklyn and the International Gem Tower in New York.
