Project Overview

Commercial Metal Company’s (CMC) location in Durant, Oklahoma, is the fifth project for which Cache Valley Electric has provided heavy industrial electrical work for CMC. This was a highly technical 2-year project, and at peak of the project 165 CVE employees were on site.

CMC Steel Oklahoma will produce straight and spooled rebar as well as T-post fencing. This is only the second EAF micro mill in the United States. This EAF micro mill utilizes a continuous process, casting and rolling with a single, uninterrupted strand from melt to finished product. This technology reduces energy consumption, cost, and improves yield efficiencies. It has the capacity to produce 390,00 tons of rebar using recycled pre- and post- consumer scrap. It can produce rebar in #4 through #11 bar sizes and in 20, 40 and 60 feet, and in standard and custom lengths. Spooled rebar will be produced in #3 through #6 bar sizes and offered in spool weights up to 5.5 tons. The spooler system is the first ever in the United States. It can make rebar spools of 5,000+ feet in length depending the size of bar.
