Flack Global Metals to Build Facility Near Big River Steel

Written by Sandy Williams

Flack Global Metals says it will move forward on plans to build a new coil coating and downstream processing facility adjacent to Big River Steel in Osceola, Ark. The new facility will cost approximately $150 million and create more than 150 new jobs.

This investment, if completed, will add production capability to the Big River Steel campus for pre-painted steel and aluminum coils. Downstream slitting, blanking and embossing are being developed to further add value to painted material and to complement FGM’s growing business platform.

Big River Steel and the Arkansas Economic Development Corporation worked together to bring Flack Global to Arkansas.

“We look forward to continuing to collaborate with FGM on the development of this advanced facility and are thrilled about the value it could bring to Arkansas,” said Big River Steel CEO Dave Stickler.

“The state-of-the-art facility will not only leverage the latest in coil coating technology but also strategically position us to be a market leader in the production of surface and flatness critical steel and aluminum materials across a wide variety of applications,” said FGM Founder and CEO Jeremy Flack.

Flack Global Metals hopes to begin construction on the facility next summer and begin production in late 2021.
