Benteler Breaks Ground on Louisiana Steel Tube Mill
 
Benteler Steel/Tube has broken ground on a new seamless steel tube mill in Caddo Parish, La., the German company’s first manufacturing facility in the United States. Upon completion, the $975 million, 1.35-million-square-foot facility will be capable of producing up to 320,000 tons of steel tubes annually.

The Northwest Louisiana site was chosen from more than 100 possible locations in 13 states due to its proximity to the North American oil and gas production market and the existence of a skilled local workforce, the company says.

“This new manufacturing facility—our first in the United States—is an important part of our global growth strategy,” says Matthias Jaeger, president and CEO of Benteler Steel/Tube GmbH. “With more than 25 percent of our steel/tube products already flowing into the United States, and demand expected to increase, this new Caddo Parish plant is poised to play a critical role in supporting the U.S. domestic energy industry.”

Jaeger said construction is on track to be completed in late 2014, with manufacturing operations beginning in the second half of 2015.

A new training facility is also being built on the campus of Bossier Parish Community College, where potential employees will receive instruction in the latest manufacturing technologies. Once the Benteler plant is operational, the facility will be become a regional hub for providing advanced manufacturing support and training for other companies.
