AISC member Atlas Tube, a division of JMC Steel Group, is reopening its Hollow Structural Section (HSS) manufacturing facility in Blytheville, Ark. The facility will begin regularly scheduled mill rollings in September. The decision to re-open this plant will allow Atlas Tube to provide high quality customer service, reduce product lead times, and enhance delivery performance to customers in the Southeast and Southwest regions of the country. Atlas will produce round, square, and rectangle HSS at this facility. These products are typically used in various construction and OEM applications.
“The new technology we have deployed in Blytheville will elevate our quality, drive higher order turnaround, and give us added capacity to better serve our customers in the Southern and Western regions of the country,” said David Seeger, president of JMC Steel Group.
Customers serviced from the Blytheville facility will continue to be supported via the Customer Service teams at the company’s Chicago, Plymouth, Mich., and Harrow, Ontario facilities.
