Heidtman to Open East Chicago Plant Soon
 
Heidtman Steel plans to begin production at its new slitting facility in East Chicago, Ind., in early September.

"Most of the equipment is now in place," says Heidtman's Western Region Vice President Gene Cope. "We anticipate conducting trial runs later this month, with some production commencing in September and full production by October."

The 120,000-square-foot facility houses an Alcos brand advanced high-strength steel slitter capable of slitting material in thicknesses from 0.015 to 0.250 inch, and in widths up to 78 inches. The line will handle coils up to 70,000 pounds and 84 inches in diameter. In addition to AHSS products, the line will be able to precision-slit a full range of carbon flat-rolled steel products, including surface critical HRPO, cold-rolled, galvanized, galvannealed and galvalume.

"East Chicago is well suited for this type of slitter and an ideal location for us to better serve our growing customer base," says Tim Berra, president of Toledo, Ohio-based Heidtman. "The plant couldn't be in any better location. It is in close proximity to mills that produce AHSS steels and it's centrally located to the customer base that uses those products."

The plant is located in the East Chicago Enterprise Center Complex, immediately adjacent to Electric Coating Technologies. It is served by the Indiana Harbor Belt Railroad and convenient to five Lake Michigan ports.
