Steel Dynamics Inc announced the selection of Sinton, Texas, as the site for the company's previously announced new state-of-the-art, electric-arc-furnace flat roll steel mill. Sinton is located approximately 30 miles Northwest of the port of Corpus Christi, Texas. Sinton is strategically located within the targeted Southwest U.S. and Mexico market regions, bringing numerous competitive customer and raw material advantages to the project. Final determination is still subject to the anticipated receipt of necessary permits and continued state and local government support, which the company expects to be forthcoming.

The Sinton location brings numerous advantages, including:

Proximity to the three targeted customer regions of the four-state Texas area, the Western U.S. and Mexico representing approximately 27 million tons of relevant flat roll steel consumption,

Customer-centric logistic benefits, providing shorter lead times and meaningful customer working capital savings,

Central to the largest domestic consumption of flat roll Galvalume® and construction painted products, with the anticipated ability to effectively compete with excessive regional imports,

Sufficient acreage to allow customers to locate on-site, providing logistic savings and steel mill volume base-loading opportunities,

Proximity to prime ferrous scrap generation via the four-state Texas region and Mexico, and cost-effective access to pig iron through the deep-water port of Corpus Christi, as well as other alternative iron units,

Excellent logistics provided by on-site access to two class I railroads, transloading opportunities with a third class I railroad, proximity to a major U.S. highway system, and access to the deep-water port of Corpus Christi

Existing, mature and dependable power, natural gas, and water sources
