TUCSON, Ariz., Oct. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- North Jackson, Ohio-based Liberty Steel Products, Inc. has signed a contract with The Offshore Group for the provision of outsourced manufacturing support, or "shelter," services in Mexico.

According to Liberty Steel's General Manager of Operations, Joe Dubaj, "As a company we are very proud of our track record of customer service. As a commitment to our loyal customers we are adding an additional operation in Mexico to support their production efforts.
"Our new facility will be initially dedicated to stamping and assembly. We will have press capacity up through 2000 tons and be capable to run both progressive and transfer operations.
