Outokumpu now offers a full range of stainless rebar products to the North American market. The company’s offerings from its Richburg, S.C., facility include rebar in coil, cut-to-length or bent shapes. Use of corrosion-resistant stainless rebar is growing rapidly in construction of bridges and highways as it adds decades to the useful life of infrastructure.
Outokumpu’s Richburg facility has the capabilities to cover a full range of rebar dimensions from No. 3 to No. 8 (from 6 mm to 25.4 mm) and lengths up to 60 feet. The company promises short lead times for its stainless rebar.
“With multiple landmark projects, Outokumpu has a strong reputation in the stainless steel rebar market globally. From our South Carolina facilities, we are able to offer fully domestically produced stainless rebar for customers in U.S. and in Canada,” says Bob Beatty, head of Outokumpu Stainless Bar, USA.
