Expanded operations will supply steel mills in Taiwan with raw material.
TMS International Corp., the parent company of Tube City IMS Corp., has expanded its scrap yard in Taichung, Taiwan, to accommodate the company’s growth opportunities. The Taiwan plant, which opened in early 2011, is the first for the company in Taiwan.
The company's Taichung operation supplies raw material to steel mills in Taiwan. The relocated and enhanced scrap yard has almost double the production capacity and enables the company to meet increasing demand for steel making raw materials in the region.
David Aronson, TMS’ raw material and optimization group president and COO, says, “With the increased demand it became clear that we would need to expand our yard operation. Our business continues to grow in the Taiwan region due to the quality and effectiveness of our team.”
