.MCN’s annual toll processing directory now includes approx. 185 company listings.
Toll processors – companies that process material for a fee but don’t own the metal – play a vital role in the metals supply chain. Once used almost exclusively by metal producers to provide processing needs before moving steel downstream, processors are increasingly tapped by service centers and OEMs for those same services.
Metal Center News’ Directory of Toll Processors is the most comprehensive listing of North America’s toll processing community. Updated throughout the year and published each February, the directory includes listings for 185 companies. Some of those companies are 100 percent toll processors, owning no material and driving revenue exclusively through its services. Others are service centers who supplement their own sales with processing for a fee. The directory breaks the companies down into three regions of the United States, plus processors who serve international markets.
Processors engage in a variety of services, most frequently involving flat-rolled steel. Slitting, cut-to-length, blanking, leveling, shearing and edge conditioning are among the most common work done. Still others offer warehousing, transportation and coating for
the metals supply chain.
Automotive and appliances have historically been among the end-use markets where toll processors play their largest role, particularly when material is bought mill-direct.
However, as the metals supply chain evolves through consolidation, pricing swings and other changes, processors have forged their way into numerous other end markets.
Likewise, more and more of North America’s service centers have entered the toll processing field, hoping to derive the most value out of their significant expenditures
MCN’s Directory of Toll Processors is designed as an easy-to-use resource to help any type of metals company locate a service provider that can meet its needs. Each listing includes contact information and a summary of the services provided, its capacity for handling specific types and forms of metal products, and its geographic reach.
Companies are listed alphabetically, grouped by region. Some companies may market their services into more than one region of the country.
