Storage, Rail & Heavy Haul
Eagle Steel Products, (now Eagle Steel & Metal Products) was incorporated on November 16th, 1982, in Louisville Kentucky by Shirley Ohta and Charles Moore.
Eagle was the first minority-owned and operated strip steel processing facility in the US. On January 4th, 1988, the Eagle “landed” at the Port of IN’s Clark Maritime Center located on the Ohio River. This location propelled Eagle not only into processed steel products, but also participates in Multi-modal, (barge, rail and truck) transportation.
In 1992, the company unveiled an 82,000/square foot warehouse (now, 120,000/sq. feet) to its customers. The warehouse is located on Collins Ln. in Louisville KY, located directly behind Ford’s Kentucky Truck Plant.
In 2010, Eagle sold the Jeffersonville IN operation to Metals USA, retaining the Collins LN steel and metals warehousing facility and the fleet of company trucks which had become prominently known for servicing the local Ports as well as the regional metals transportation business. This was a joint ownership between Shirley Ohta and Metals USA, retaining its status as a Minority Owned Business.
March 1st, 2019, Shelby Ray Throneburg, her father Stuart Ray and their family purchased the remaining assets of Eagle Steel Products, changed the name to Eagle Steel & Metal Products and is committed to returning ESMP to its prominent role as a steel processor, distributor, warehouse and transportation provider of steel and metal products. Eagle Steel & Metal Products continues as a Woman and Minority Owned Business.
