IRVING, Texas, Nov. 29, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Commercial Metals Company (NYSE: CMC) today announced that the company will invest in a second spooler to produce hot-rolled, spooled rebar at its micro mill in Mesa, Arizona. This investment is in addition to the January 2017 announcement of the first spooler in the United States, which will be located at the company’s new micro mill in Durant, Oklahoma. The company expects to begin shipping spooled rebar from the Oklahoma mill in the spring of 2018 and from the Arizona mill about one year later.
“We are excited to expand our production capabilities of spooled rebar in the United States. The ability to produce and sell spooled rebar from both Oklahoma and Arizona will allow us to reach a broader geographic market. The micro mill technology lends itself well to spooled rebar production and allows us to offer spools from 1.5 to 4.8 tons. CMC remains committed to supporting and servicing the concrete reinforcing industry with new and innovative products,” commented Tracy Porter, Executive Vice President, CMC Operations.
