Nova Steel to Open Tube Mill Near North Star BlueScope

Written by Sandy Williams

Canadian pipe and tube company Nova Steel is returning to the U.S. with a $70 million investment in Delta, Ohio.

NovaSteelNova plans to construct two new tube mills in northwest Ohio in proximity to North Star BlueScope. The 250,000-square-foot facility will produce hollow structural sections and standard pipe.

“We are very excited to be back in the United States with a tube and pipe production facility,” said Scott Jones, Nova Steel CEO. “This strategic location in northwest Ohio will help us serve our existing customer base more effectively and allow us to grow our business geographically.”

The Ohio location is ideal due to an excellent supply of steel coil from North Star BlueScope, said Jones, as well a direct access to rail and highway. The Nova facility will create about 100 new jobs.

Nova Steel, a privately-owned company headquartered in Montreal, is a diversified value-added manufacturer of steel products using steel coil as its primary input. With nine locations in North America, Nova Steel provides pickling, slitting, temper rolling, leveling, blanking, tube making, pipe processing and laser tube cutting. The company services the automotive, construction, mining, agriculture, transportation, plumbing and heating, HVAC, waste equipment, rail, and other related industries.
