O’Neal Steel executives cut a ribbon at the company’s grand opening ceremony Thursday.

O’Neal Steel celebrated its grand opening Thursday at its new 64,000-square-foot facility at 2901 S. 22nd St. in St. Joseph with executives and employees from the company, Altec, the St. Joseph Chamber of Commerce and Mayor Bill McMurray.

O’Neal Steel was lured to St. Joseph because of its long-standing partnership with Altec, which provides products for electrical utilities, telecommunications and tree care. O’Neal Steel produces the steel used to manufacture many of Altec’s products. This new facility will save Altec money on distribution costs.
