Written by Sandy Williams

Steel processor JM Steel, a JENNMAR affiliate, will expand its footprint at the site of Steel Dynamics new flat roll steel mill in Sinton, Texas.

The JM facility will include three slitting lines capable of producing 30,000 tons of steel a month. The first line will have capabilities of 0.500″ by 84″ at 80,000 psi, with thickness ranging from 0.050″ – 0.500″. The slitter will be able to handle 105,000 pounds max coil weights and run up to 400 feet per minute.

The plant and the slitter will be operational by June 30, 2021. Plans in years three and four include lighter gauge slitter capabilities and additional value-added services like laser cutting and press braking.

The new facility will also boast two roll forming lines and a stamping press capable of producing 260,000 bolts per month to serve mining markets located in Mexico, Honduras, Costa Rica, Chile and Peru. The new location gives JM Steel Sinton excellent export opportunities to supplement the core ground control business of JENNMAR, the company said.

“We look forward to the many opportunities this location and the new SDI Mill will offer JM Steel and JENNMAR,” said Tony Calandra, group president of Frank Calandra Inc. and Calandra Group LLC.
