Houston-based MRC Global – No. 7 on Industrial Distribution's 2014 Big 50 List – announced Monday that its subsidiary, McJunkin Red Man Corporation, has opened a new regional distribution center in Monessen, PA just outside of Pittsburgh. MRC says the new facility is approximately 163,000 square feet of warehouse space on 14 acres. It will also house MRC Global’s fifth valve automation center in its U.S. Eastern region.
“Our primary focus is serving our customers with excellence,” Chairman, President & CEO Andrew Lane said. “Adding this new facility is a direct response to the increased activity of our customers in the region, especially with our gas utility business and midstream gathering and transmission market segments. The new RDC will increase our ability to service the many long-term customers in this important region.”
MRC says the facility – its 10th regional distribution center in the U.S. – will employ approximately 26 people and support 15 MRC Global branches throughout the Northeast U.S.
The new RDC is located at 1000 Maronda Way, Monessen Riverfront Industrial Park Phase II, Monessen, PA.
