Steel Tube to Install UV Clear Coating Line
Steel Tube, Inc., Statesville, N.C., plans to double its capacity to meet UV and corrosion-resistant mechanical and structural steel tubing demand. The company supplies products to customers in the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic regions of the United States.
Steel Tube will install a UV clear coating line for galvanized steel tubing, as well as a CNC sawing system that offers high-speed, ultra-precision cutting with brush deburring capability. This will add additional quality elements to Steel Tube's existing finished product standards, the company claims.
As part of the 32,000-square-foot expansion, Steel Tube will hire up to 20 additional employees to meet increased production demands. The expansion also seeks to provide the production flexibility needed to meet aggressive production timelines.
Production of UV resistant galvanized steel tubing is expected to begin in July. Steel Tube is a producer and distributor of carbon steel and galvanized steel tubing, offering cut-to-length and in-house delivery.
