Chicago-based Second City Metals recently celebrated 10 years in business.

The national steel distributor sells 60-inch coil for rectangular duct and slit coil for spiral duct manufacturers in galvanized, galvannealed, perforated, stainless, aluminum, aluminized and polyvinyl-coated coils and sheets.

Second City Metals was established 10 years ago as a galvanized steel supplier for spiral manufacturers. It soon became a one-stop shop for spiral manufacturers by supplying all metal manufactured on a spiral machine.

After becoming a premier steel supplier for prime steel to spiral manufacturers, the company added 60-inch coil six years ago to those customers who manufacture rectangular duct with coil lines.

“Once we made a name for ourselves as a prime steel supplier it was a natural progression to supply 60-inch coil in addition to slit coil because a lot of our customers have both spiral tube formers and coil lines,” said President Joe Landry.

“Both our five-year plan and now 10-year plan has paid off because we target a specific market and walk before we run.”

Second City Metals recently announced that they are supplying a full line of stamped fittings including elbows, saddle taps, bell mouth takeoffs, reducers, end caps and couplings.

“Being market specific allows us to grow our relationship with our current customers by supplying them with more of their HVAC needs,” Landry said. “SCM customers know that once we decide on supplying a product that they will always receive the best quality at a competitive price delivered quickly.”
