Wabash Steel Supply has grand opening

By Mandy Underwood

Wabash Steel Supply had a grand opening for its new location on Thursday, Nov. 21.

Guests were welcomed all day with donuts, pizza, raffles and giveaways along with the Steel Supply team there to answer any questions.

Wabash Steel Supply has been serving the Wabash area since 2015 and after a year of work, they were able to open a new location and be able to better supply Wabash and surrounding areas with steel and industrial supplies.

Wabash Steel Supply President Steven Siders said that the preparations leading to their new location have been “crazy.”

“There have been a lot of hours, a lot of money and a lot of dedication from a lot of our employees,” he said.

“It has been difficult to get this off the ground, but here we are, and it’s really great.” 

Ben Gebhart, CEO of Gebhart Holdings and owner of Wabash Steel Supply, also discussed the grand opening celebration with The Paper of Wabash County.

“We’ve been in business for several years, but we have been down the street and we have been working on this place for about a year and finally we are ready to unravel it,” he said. “There is still a lot of work to go, and still a lot of things we would like to do, but for the most part, we are officially open for business at this location.”

Gebhart hopes that with the new store and the variety of products offered there, that they can change their sales from mainly industrial based to include more retail sales as well.

Wabash Steel Supply specializes in flat stock, angle, and sheet steel, aluminum, industrial supplies, safety supplies, welding supplies, tanks, and more within that realm.

The new store is located at 1945 S. Wabash St. and is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
