Welcome to Alro.com. Your grocery store for metals! Alro is a distributor of metals and plastics.
Beginning in 1948, Alro Steel was incorporated in a small garage in Jackson, Michigan. The name "Al-Ro" was derived from
the first two letters from brothers Al & Robert Glick. Al began the company during a steel shortage in the 1940's which
was due to the military demands of World War II. Al found a niche matching up companies with steel needs to companies with
excess steel. Today, Alro has grown to over 80 locations in 16 states.
