Aug. 18, 2010: Steel Processor Opens New Duct Manufacturing and Construction Businesses

WARREN, Mich. - SET Enterprises Inc., a provider of steel processing services with operations in Michigan, Indiana, and Illinois, has announced the opening of two new business ventures: SET Duct Manufacturing Inc. and SET Construction Inc. These two new ventures will be housed at a newly renovated 40,000-square-foot facility in a former renaissance zone in Detroit.

According to the company, SET Duct Manufacturing Inc. combines a seasoned team of individuals with expertise in the HVAC duct industry, state-of-the-art fabricating equipment, and SET’s steel processing expertise to create a dynamic new player in the commercial and industrial HVAC duct market. SET Duct’s capabilities will include the manufacture of commercial-grade spiral, oval, and rectangular duct, and related fittings and components. SET Duct Manufacturing, with support from the Michigan Economic Development Corp. (MEDC) and Detroit Economic Growth Corp. (DEGC), is planning to create nearly 40 jobs in an economically challenged section of Detroit with a workforce represented by Local 80 of the Sheet Metal Workers Union.

SET Construction Inc. will provide general contracting, program management, and construction management services as well as self-performing capabilities in masonry, interior build, finish/rough carpentry, and concrete to its commercial, governmental, and military client base.

Sid E. Taylor, chairman/CEO of SET Enterprises Inc., stated, “SET’s expansion into the manufacture of HVAC duct represents a natural leveraging of our core automotive steel processing capabilities and the addition of our construction capabilities will complement this expansion. Additionally, I am proud to be able to bring in a team experienced in these industries that is committed to building a foundation for growth and adding jobs in a difficult economic environment in Detroit.”

SET Enterprises, led by Taylor, a former United States Marine, Vietnam combat veteran, and former Ernst and Young Entrepreneur of the Year recipient, has been a provider of steel processing services since 1989.
