Friedman’s Facility to be Operational in April

By on

Friedman Industries expects its new coil processing facility in Sinton, Texas, to commence operations in April 2022. The company updated progress on the facility at its recent quarterly conference call.

The new location will consist of a 70,000-square-foot building on 26.5 acres, housing one of the world’s largest stretcher leveler cut-to-length lines. The new line will be able to process material up to one-inch thick, at widths up to 96 inches and yields exceeding 100,000 psi.

“We are excited about the future of our new Sinton facility and the growth opportunity it provides for the company,” said Michael J. Taylor, president and CEO. “After an initial ramp-up period during calendar 2022, we expect the facility’s annual shipments could be in the range of 110,000 tons to 140,000 tons for calendar 2023.”

Ground was broken on the site in August. The project is estimated at $21 million.
