CHICAGO—Kelly Pipe Co., LLC has just purchased a 92,000-square-foot industrial warehouse located at 2200-2206 W. 159th Street in south suburban Markham. A distributor of steel pipe and fittings, the firm is currently located at 16750 S. Vincennes St. in nearby South Holland, but needs to expand in order to accommodate future growth. Founded in 1898, Kelly Pipe Co. stocks domestic and imported carbon steel pipe from sources around the world. The company has distribution centers throughout the US, Europe and Asia.

Kelly Pipe had been looking for a new home since mid-2012, either land for a BTS or the purchase of an existing building. The Markham location is a single-story warehouse featuring 18-foot high ceilings, two drive-in doors, heavy electric, and 75 surface parking spaces.
