Sept. 27, 2011 – Southern Aluminum Finishing announced today that Huber Street Properties, a closely related entity to SAF, has purchased the Redding, Calif., facility in which SAF-West currently operates. SAF-West serves the western U.S., Canada, and Pacific Rim markets with architectural aluminum distribution, fabrication and finishing services.

The 13-acre property includes approximately 230,000 square feet of
manufacturing and office space. The purchase helps cement SAF plans for
expanded capabilities and services, including a new anodizing facility
scheduled for next year.

"We are excited to grow SAF facilities in California. We are here to
stay in Redding, Calif., our base for growing our markets for architectural
aluminum in western U.S. and Asia," said James McClatchey, vice-president of SAF.

HSP is also developing plans to upgrade the building to attract new
tenants for the facilities not operated by SAF. "The building offers an
opportunity for a true mixed use facility including manufacturing as
well as offices. We see lots of possibilities." said McClatchey
