Mill Steel Opens Facility in Houston

Written by Sandy Williams

Mill Steel Co., Grand Rapids, Mich., one of the nation’s largest distributors of flat-rolled carbon steel, expanded its operations and geographic presence with the opening of a new facility in Houston.

The new Texas location is now operational with slitting and cut-to-length capabilities in the 100,000-square-foot facility. This premier building houses three production lines with the capability of slitting 50,000 pound master coils up to 60 inches wide and 0.015-0.250 inch thick. The company plans to add additional production lines in the near future. With these aggressive expansion plans, this will become one of Mill Steel’s flagship service centers.

Mill Steel will distribute its entire product line from this new location, including hot-rolled, cold-rolled, painted, and coated steel. It will maintain a large painted product inventory, with a full complement of paint systems and codes. This development will support Mill Steel’s construction, automotive, oil country tubular goods (OCTG), agriculture and HVAC business in the southern United States and Mexico. Furthermore, the geographic advantages and strategic proximity to the Port of Houston will enhance Mill Steel’s distribution efforts.

“The addition of this location represents Mill Steel’s entry into the significant southern U.S. market and furthers our customer and product diversification,” said Mill Steel Chairman and CEO David Samrick. “We are very pleased to enter this robust commercial territory, which allows us to grow and support our existing customer base.”

Mill Steel operates six service center locations including Grand Rapids and Melvindale, Mich.; Anderson and Jeffersonville, Ind.; Birmingham, Ala.; and now Houston.
