JM Steel recently announced a colocation on the Steel Dynamics Inc site in Sinton. Frank Calandra Inc and Calandra Group LLC Group President Tony Calandra said “JM Steel will be expanding its footprint substantially over the next two years! Steel Dynamics Inc has invited us to be part of their newest flat roll steel mill located in Sinton in Texas, just outside of Corpus Christi. The new mill will target regional market place driven by manufacturing, automotive, construction, transportation, and energy markets. The new Sinton mill will have an estimated annual capacity of 3.0 million tons, and boast Next Generation electric arc furnace technology.”

JM Steel's facility has plans to include three slitting lines capable of producing 30,000 tons of steel a month. Our first line will have capabilities of .500" x 84" @ 80,000 psi, with thickness ranging from .050" - .500". The slitter will be able to handle 105,000 lbs max coil weights and run up to 400 fpm. With these characteristics JM Steel will have the largest, most capable slitter in the United States. The plant and the slitter will be operational by June 30th, 2021. Plans in years three and four include lighter gauge slitter capabilities and additional value added services like laser cutting and press braking capabilities. The new facility will also boast two roll forming lines and a stamping press capable of producing 260,000 bolts per month to serve mining markets located in Mexico, Honduras, Costa Rica, Chile and Peru.

The new location gives JM Steel Sinton excellent export opportunities to supplement its core ground control business of JENNMAR.
