Mill Steel Expands in Jeffersonville

Mill Steel Co., Grand Rapids, Mich., is expanding its footprint to include a new 225,000-square-foot service center at the Port of Indiana-Jeffersonville. The flat-roll distributor purchased an existing 105,000-square-foot facility and immediately added 120,000 square feet. The new plant, to start up in June, will house two new slitting lines in addition to a cut-to-length line, which will add to the company's service capabilities. The $16.1 million capital investment will add 43 new full-time jobs to the region, the company estimates.

The Port of Indiana-Jeffersonville will provide Mill Steel with direct connections to multiple rail carriers and year-round barge shipping with access to the Gulf of Mexico and Great Lakes through the Ohio-Mississippi river system. The Jeffersonville port is the newest of three facilities operated by the Ports of Indiana and is home to a "Steel Campus" alliance of 13 businesses that work together providing a range of metals-related synergies at the Ohio River facility.

Mill Steel Co. expects to further develop established relationships with other port service companies such as Roll Forming Corp., Steel Dynamics, Voss Clark, Kinder Morgan, OmniSource and Metals USA, to name a few.

"We are very excited by the opportunity to locate in Jeffersonville, which is an outstanding complement to our existing steel service center processing locations in Grand Rapids, Melvindale (Detroit) and Birmingham, Ala.," said David Samrick, CEO of Mill Steel Co. "We felt it was absolutely critical to position ourselves at a location that will enable us to continue our delivery of outstanding just-in-time services to our growing automotive, construction, appliance and general manufacturing customer base."
