New Processor Raises the Bar Midstream

Mississippi Steel Processing LLC will expand its new facility on the campus of the Severstal Steel Mill in Columbus, Miss. Although the MSP facility is presently under construction, plans have been modified to begin the second phase processing bay, which will ultimately add 72,000 square feet to the facility. The extra space accommodates a new 5/8-inch by 74-inch by 90,000-pound slitting line and a new crane.

"Our discussions with potential customers and general market feedback indicated enough demand for processing heavier gauge material to justify having the heavier capacity slitter here and running sooner than originally planned. It's a little unusual to 'expand' the plant when it's less than 50 percent built, but now is the time it can be done with reduced cost and minimal disruption to the project schedule," says MSP President Chip Gerber. 

Mississippi Steel Processing is a new toll processor providing storage, logistics and first-stage fabrication of hot-band and hot-rolled pickled and oiled strip steel.
