TKMNA Opens Birmingham Processing Facility
 
ThyssenKrupp Materials NA Inc. has opened a 100,000-square-foot carbon, stainless and aluminum coil processing and distribution service center in Woodstock, Ala. TKMNA invested more than $15 million in the facility, just outside of the Birmingham metropolitan area.

The new facility processes and distributes carbon steel, stainless steel and aluminum coil for TKMNA's customers across the southern United States. ThyssenKrupp Steel Services and Ken-Mac Metals, both divisions of TKMNA, occupy the facility.

Currently, two cut-to-length lines and one 72-inch-wide slitter process material through the facility. TKMNA's investment includes a surrounding property, which will allow the facility to expand up to 250,000 square feet.

"The Americas region is the second-largest region in our international materials business and is a key area for investment and opportunity with the recent resurgence of manufacturing throughout the country," says Joachim Limberg, CEO, Business Area Material Services, ThyssenKrupp AG. "This new facility is key to our global strategy and establishes a great, customer-focused location in the heart of America's manufacturing region."
