Steelcare is able to handle up to 1.5 million tons of rail transload product in a given year. The transaction includes TransCare Logistics Corporation, Prometheus Six Inc. and East Port Warehousing & Distribution, said a release.

Projected yearly revenue as a result of the transaction is approximately $10 million.

The intent is to keep the current management structure and employees in place. Clements will also serve as Steelcare’s Executive Vice President.
