In 2017, Salit Specialty Rebar, known as SSR, consolidated from two plants into one. We closed our Niagara Falls facility and moved all staff and operations to our Buffalo facility in order to increase productivity by reducing material handling time and promoting easier communication.
Before the big move SSR renovated the Buffalo office, and transformed approx. 6,000 square feet of previously unusable space into SSR’s headquarters. If you take a look at the pictures you’ll see that they even used some stainless rebar in the interior design! This is the first time that all staff have worked from the same office.
In the past year SSR has invested heavily in quality control equipment and training for our staff to continue to lead the way in stainless rebar fabrication. We adopted a new Stainless Steel Reinforcing Bar Fabrication Quality Standard published by the CRSI (Concrete Reinforcing Steel Institute). SSR’s stand-alone stainless steel facility in Buffalo, NY is unparalleled in its ability to produce quality product quickly for the North American markets.
Our Sales group has expanded our products to include stainless steel welded wire mesh to complement our comprehensive inventory of stainless steel rebar, couplers, tie wire, etc.
SSR expanded operations to three shift during busy months to increase output to best serve our customers, and in 2018 SSR is working on adding additional processing equipment.
The SSR team is excited about the improvements we’ve made to best serve the stainless reinforcing industry and out continued objective is to be an industry leader in quality and on-time performance.
