Cargill to Build Denver Processing Facility
 
Cargill plans to begin construction soon on its eighth steel processing facility in the United States to meet increased demand for steel products in the manufacturing and shale oil industries. The new 60,000-square-foot steel processing and distribution facility will be built about 60 miles north of Denver in the Great Western Industrial Park.

"By locating in northern Colorado, which is in the heart of one of the largest oil shale formations in the U.S., Cargill can better serve and bring more value to our customers in this part of the country," says Cargill Steel Service Center President Mike Taylor.

Cargill opened a distribution depot in Colorado in 2011, retrofitting an 18,000-square-foot leased facility in nearby Fort Collins. Rapid growth in manufacturing and the recent development of the shale oil industry in the region has created greater demand for steel products across many market segments, the company claims.

The plant will process hot-rolled steel coils into cut-to-length steel sheet and plate products in thicknesses from 16 gauge up to one-half inch, in widths from 48 to 72 inches wide. It will offer standard and custom lengths for customers in 15 states in the Midwest and West. It will also serve as a distribution center for laser-quality ultra-flat RPS steel produced at Cargill’s Granite City, Ill., facility and hot-rolled cut-to-length sheet and plate from its Port of Catoosa, Okla., facility.
