Cargill to Close Nashville Facility

Cargill, Inc., The Woodlands, Texas, will close its Nashville, Tenn., service center at the beginning of 2016.

“This was a difficult decision because we have a great team in Nashville,” says James Heard, co-leader for Cargill Metals Supply Chain. “They have worked hard to recover from the damage of the 2010 Nashville flood, but given the challenging margin environment and significant investment to make the facility competitive, we concluded the best decision for the metals business unit was to cease operations at the Nashville location.”

The Nashville facility, located at 600 Cowan St., employs 54 people. A number of positions will stay with the metals business. The rest will be considered for positions at other Cargill facilities, the company says.

The Nashville operation offers cut-to-length sheet and plate, slitting on three machines, plus a pickle line and corrective leveling. “Cargill is committed to providing the best possible service and quality to its customers and will continue to serve our Nashville customers of cut-to-length steel from other Cargill facilities,” Heard says.

Cargill, North America’s 21st largest service center company, operates seven other flat-rolled steel service centers in Granite City, Ill.; East Chicago, Ind.; Tulsa, Okla.; Loudon, Tenn.; Panama City, Fla.; Windsor, Colo.; and Houston. The Windsor service center opened earlier this year.
