Heartland, Inc. announced this morning that Heartland Steel, its steel warehousing subsidiary, has surpassed $1 million in sales. The company specifically highlighted the fact that this milestone was reached before the completion or occupation of Heartland Steel’s new state-of-the-art warehousing and distribution facility and office space in Washington Court House, Ohio.

“We literally have hit the ground running,” stated Randy W. Frevert, President, of Heartland Steel. “Our customer and prospect list is growing daily, and we built a 500 ton inventory of steel at competitive prices. In September, when our facility becomes fully operational, I would expect both the pace of our progress and the level of our performance to grow substantially. We are in the right place at the right time with an exceptional team of people and intend to provide the best in service, support and quick response for the needs of our customers.”

“What Randy has achieved in such a short time is truly amazing,” added Terry Lee, chief executive officer of Heartland, Inc. “Taken by itself, reaching one million dollars in sales in such a short period of time is a solid accomplishment. To do so without a roof over ones head while overseeing the construction of a facility, planning the details of the infrastructure and hiring and organizing a professional staff is a testimony to his skill, talent and dedication. He is truly the right person to lead Heartland Steel, and we view this important achievement as only the first of many in the quarters and years to come.”
