Union Partners announced Friday that one of its steel service centers, Maksteel, has completed the acquisition of LexWest Steel based in Los Angeles, California.

The company offers slitting and cut-to-length capabilities, and carries a variety of hot rolled, cold rolled, coated and pre-painted flat rolled products. With the addition of LexWest, Maksteel now operates out of nine facilities in the US and Canada.
