Wheatland Tube Will Expand DOM Production in Pennsylvania
Wheatland Tube, a division of JMC Steel Group, plans to make a significant investment in its drawn-over-mandrel mechanical tubing capacity and product capabilities. The planned investment will expand the company’s total DOM production capacity at its Church Street facility in Wheatland, Pa. Wheatland officials expect the project to be completed by 2013.
The investment will also enable Wheatland to expand its size range capability in these products, which are used in a variety of applications, including agricultural equipment, automotive parts, hydraulic equipment, fluid power applications and machined parts. Customers will be able to source a complete range of mechanical tubing products from Wheatland Tube as it increases its production capacity within its existing size range and produces larger DOM sizes, up to 9 inches outside diameter.
"We are excited to be able to bring the strength of our company to bear in order to better service this important segment of our business. We will expand our DOM tubing product offerings to our customers while maintaining our industry-recognized levels of delivery reliability, quality, and service," says David Seeger, president of JMC Steel Group. "This expansion will position our company for continued growth in this dynamic product line."
