Chesterfield, Mo.-based Bull Moose Tube Company, a Caparo Bull Moose subsidiary, is building a 350,000-ton-per-year HSS and sprinkler pipe mill on Steel Dynamics’ new Sinton, Texas, flat-rolled campus.
“BMT is excited to build in Sinton, Texas, and partner with Steel Dynamics,” said Tom Modrowski, president and CEO of BMT. “The new mill will be transformational, ranging in size from 4-inch to 14-inch square, 5-inch to 18-inch round, up to 80 feet in length, and thicknesses ranging from .187 inch to .750 inch. It will expand our geographic footprint and allow us to better serve customers not only in the Southwest, West Coast and Mexico markets, but across the entire business.
"Expanding our capacity, capabilities, and flexibility will increase BMT’s market share in large HSS sizes and ensure our continued and expanded leadership position in the sprinkler pipe market," he said.
Swraj Paul, Caparo chairman, said, the new mill “marks the start of what I am sure will be a long association with Steel Dynamics, where CEO Mark Millett and his team have done a tremendous job in establishing their state-of-the-art facility. I look forward to the future growth and success of BMT at our new Texas location.”
BMT is partnering with SMS Group for the design, automation and implementation of the mill. Company officials said they anticipate an early 2023 mill startup.
