JM Steel, a JENNMAR affiliate, will expand its footprint outside the Southeast with construction of a facility near Steel Dynamics’ new mill in Sinton, Texas. SDI is building a 3 million-ton mill with “next generation: EAF technology, expected to open in 2021.
JM Steel’s new facility will include three slitting lines capable of producing 30,000 tons of steel per month. The first line can process material up to ½ inch by 84 inches at 80,000 psi, with thickness ranging from 0.05 to 0.5 inches and capable of handling coils up to 105,000 pounds and run up to 400 fpm. Lighter gauge slitting capabilities and additional value-added services including laser cutting and press braking are expected to be added in later years.
Additionally, the facility will hold two roll forming lines and a stamping press capable of producing 260,00 bolts per year to serve mining markets in Central and South America.
“We look forward to the many opportunities this location and the new SDI Mill will offer JM Steel and JENNMAR,” said Tony Calandra, group president of Frank Calandra Inc. and Calandra Group LLC.
JM Steel currently operates a processing facility in Huger, S.C.
