SDI Adding Paint Lines at Columbus

Steel Dynamics, Inc., plans to invest $100 million in new painting and Galvalume capabilities at its Columbus, Miss., facility.

“This investment is a strategic step toward further diversification into higher-margin products for our Columbus Flat Roll Division,” says Mark D. Millett, CEO. "The additional width capability and vacuum degassing equipment at the Columbus steel mill enable us to further diversify our pre-painted product offerings by physical aspect and geography.”

SDI already operates two paint lines and the ability to produce Galvalume steel in Indiana. The new project will enable the company to produce double-wide steel for the southeastern markets and into Mexico. The company expects to sell surface-critical appliance-grade steel, plus construction-related products.

Columbus will add a continuous coil paint line with an annual coating capacity of 250,000 tons. Operations are expected to begin during the first quarter of 2017. The Columbus paint line will utilize an improved design similar to the company's existing lines in Indiana.

“We have achieved significant success related to our existing pre-painted flat-roll steel business," Millett says. “Our customers recognize the quality of our products and the benefit of our shorter order-cycle. We are the only domestic steel company to have a contiguous paint line at a production location, offering painted steels directly to the consumer.”
