SCHAUMBURG, IL / ACCESSWIRE / March 16, 2020 / Wieland North America announced today that they have entered into a definitive agreement to acquire the business of specialty metals re-roller Scott Brass (House of Stainless, Inc., d/b/a Scott Brass) through an asset purchase transaction.
The transaction will broaden the customer base served by Wieland’s global distribution network (consisting of over 90 facilities and 9,000 employees) and further strengthen Wieland’s position in the North American market.
Scott Brass, based in Cranston, Rhode Island offers a range of specialty metals products to its customers in the northeast and across the United States.
