February 2013 - Marmon/Keystone president J.T. "Tim" Spatafore is pleased to announce the completion of a 105,000 sq. ft. service center 10 miles northeast of downtown Birmingham, Alabama at 105 Goodrich Drive. The facility was completely rebuilt from the ground up after sustaining severe damage from an EF3 tornado, which devastated the area in January 2012. All operations have been relocated back to the Goodrich Drive service center from a temporary site on Pinson Valley Parkway without any interruption to sales, service or delivery.
The office and warehouse facility features five overhead cranes, three new Amada high-speed band saws and a new DoALL miter saw. These fully automated saws will increase productivity and offer expanded cutting capabilities up to 26” OD. The building also includes a steel-reinforced concrete storm shelter.
Marmon/Keystone’s Birmingham location serves customers in Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi and the majority of Kentucky and Tennessee. Major markets include agriculture, automotive, fabrication and heavy equipment. Birmingham’s sales department continues to be available via their regular toll-free number, 1-800-633-4051.
“We are extremely grateful to all of our suppliers and customers; they have been very supportive over the past year,” says Mike Gregory, Birmingham branch manager. “The assistance we received from our fellow Marmon/Keystone team members, especially those at the Atlanta, Houston and Charlotte locations, enabled us to continue providing the superior customer service we are known for at Marmon/Keystone.”
“The dedication and innovation that our Birmingham employees have continually displayed is a great testimony to the strength of Marmon/Keystone’s greatest asset, our people,” says president Spatafore.
