Kodi Majors got her start working in the metal industry with Pacific Steel & Recycling 30 years ago. It wasn't long after that she was looking for a way to continue her career from home so she could have more time with her daughter. In 2003, Major Metal Service was incorporated, and moved in to 1110 Robertson Circle in South Gillette.
Kodi eventually sold that business and returned to Pacific Steel in sales, but this year, Pacific Steel & Recycling bought the Major Metal Service location so that they had room to expand. So Kodi's career has come full circle, and Pacific Steel & Recycling has added all the amenties that Major Metal Service has to offer Gillette. With their 100 ton press brake, they will continue to service the mining industry in Northeast Wyoming.
Matt Taylor was the Branch Manager for Pacific Steel in Billings and less than a month ago moved his family to Gillette to manage the new location.
"He's done major things in the last three weeks. The location needed a little TLC," said Gillette Branch Manager Brandon Rosten. "Pacific's been in this area for 40 years but we have not been dabbling in the new steel as much as we should have been."
That will change with the move, Rosten says, taking the Powder River Basin to the "next level." They are open Monday – Friday: 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. at their original location on Larch Street. The new location on Robertson Circle is open and we cut the red ribbon on it this evening, kicking off a customer appreciation event.
