Project Overview

Steel Dynamics, Inc. is currently building a new steel mill located near Sinton, TX. This mill will consist of a melt shop, hot mill, and cold mill complex. The melt shop will feature two DC Electric Arc Furnaces and a caster capable of producing a 5.2-inch thick by 84-inch wide slab. The hot mill will have two tunnel furnaces, a 2-stand roughing mill, a 6-stand finishing mill, a laminar cooling section, two downcoilers, and a coil conveying system. The cold mill complex will include a pickling line, tandem cold mill, batch annealing process, galvanizing line, and a paint line. This steel mill will offer various products—including some that are currently not available in the United States. Products produced at this facility will primarily serve the energy, automotive, construction, and appliance sectors.
