Youngstown-based company announces Pa. expansion

YOUNGSTOWN — Steelite International, the Youngstown-based global supplier and maker of tabletop, buffet and lighting solutions to the hospitality industry, plans to further grow in Pennsylvania with a new distribution center.

The company has signed an agreement to acquire 96 acres in Lawrence County between 154 Keystone Drive, Neshannock Township, where it already has a 250,000-square foot operation, and Kings Chapel Road, according to a company release.

Steelite also has a 50,000-square-foot facility at 360 Keystone Drive. Both Keystone Drive facilities will continue to operate.

The new distribution center, 3 ½ miles north of New Castle, is expected to enhance the company’s logistical capabilities and streamline its supply chain, the release states.

“We anticipate that the construction of this building will be one of the most significant projects in Lawrence County over the past 65 years. We are confident that this state-of-the-art facility will enhance our operational efficiency and contribute to the region’s economic growth,” John Miles, Steelite president / CEO, said.

Steelite in 2022 relocated its headquarters from New Castle to downtown Youngstown, where the company already had its largest showroom and experience center. The company, which has its distribution and warehousing in Neshannock Township, sells products to more than 50,000 end-user locations across 140 countries. It has manufacturing locations in the United Kingdom and New York.
