Friedman Industries has begun shipping material to customers from its newly constructed coil processing facility in Sinton, Texas. The new facility is a 70,000-square-foot building located on 26.6 acres leased from Steel Dynamics at the steelmaker’s flat-rolled steel campus.
Material is processed on a new stretcher leveler cut-to-length line that is capable of handling steel coils up to one-inch thick, widths up to 96 inches wide and yields exceeding 100,000 psi.
The equipment commissioning process has gone smoothly so far and the customer response has been very positive, executives reported. The quality of the initial material processed has been outstanding giving the company great confidence marketing the facility’s offerings to customers. The facility is currently staffed to operate a single shift but the company is in the process of hiring and training additional personnel so a second shift can be operated as production ramps up, Friedman officials said.
