Metal Center News updates its Directory of Toll Processors on a continual basis throughout the year and publishes a new version each February. All total, MCN’s directory now includes listings for 200 companies—some dedicated 100 percent to toll processing, others that function as both service centers and toll processors.

Toll processors—companies that process other companies' metal for a fee—traditionally served as the processing arm of the mills, leveling, cutting, blanking, slitting, warehousing and shipping metal bound for large original equipment manufacturers, such as auto and appliance makers, that buy their steel mill-direct. More recently, mill consolidation and competitive pressures have prompted toll processors to seek additional business directly with OEMs looking to cut production costs by outsourcing more of their first-step manufacturing operations. Likewise, toll processors more often find themselves doing jobs for service centers that are seeking to meet customers' specialized processing needs without investing in expensive new equipment themselves.

In turn, a substantial and growing number of service centers now offer processing on a toll basis themselves, rather than just adding value to their own inventory. For some, tolling is an incidental part of their business; for others, it's an essential marketing strategy designed to expand revenues and fill excess capacity on processing lines.

MCN’s Directory of Toll Processors is designed as a simple-to-use resource to help companies locate a service provider that can meet their specific needs. It includes contact information and a summary of each company’s service capabilities and capacity for handling specific types and forms of metal products. Companies are listed alphabetically, grouped into seven regions. Note that a company may market its services in several regions, though its processing facilities are located elsewhere.
