Specialty Steel Works Inc. will begin a capital investment project at its Hammond, Ind., facility. The multimillion-dollar project will add high-performance equipment and infrastructure to the bar-to-bar operation.
The Hammond facility processes cold-finished steel bars in a range of sizes, shapes, grades, finishes and tolerances. Its primary end markets include transportation, industrial equipment and agriculture.
"We continually look for innovative solutions to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of our manufacturing platform to achieve high-quality, low-cost production and superior customer service,” said Joel Hawthorne, Chief Executive Officer of SSWI.
"This investment demonstrates our commitment to leading-edge processing and production efficiencies in order to always be in the best position to respond to our customers' changing needs. Innovation and process automation move SSWI into a market leadership position and we will continue to look for ways to meet our customers' stringent demands through enhancement of our processing capabilities, operational excellence and customer-centric culture,” said Michael Salamon, president and COO.
The Hammond facility is the largest single site for cold-drawn capacity in North America. The new equipment will be phased in over the next 12 months.
