MetLife Stadium was host to Super Bowl XLVIII on Feb. 2. The Seattle Seahawks defeated the Denver Broncos while O’Neal Flat Rolled Metals (OFR Metals) had a play in the stadium.
The Monroe Township, N.J. branch supplied the stainless steel used in the construction of the escalators and many of the foodservice areas in the structure.
“Our team supplied close to 30,000 to 40,000 pounds of stainless for the construction of the escalators used in MetLife Stadium,” said Len Russo, outside sales representative, Monroe Twp., N.J. branch.
OFR Metals assisted in the construction of the facility by supplying 316 polished stainless steel sheets to Gerard Sheet Metal, East Brunswick, N.J., for the escalators.
In 2010, MetLife Stadium opened its doors and became the second stadium to house two NFL franchises, the New York Giants and the New York Jets, after its predecessor the Giants Stadium. The 82,500 seat capacity facility, located in N.J., was a $1.6 billion project. It is the most expensive and largest stadium ever built with a 2.1 million total square feet.
