Commercial Metals Co., based in Irving, Texas, has announced that it will invest in a second spooler to produce hot-rolled, spooled rebar at its micromill in Mesa, Arizona. This investment is in addition to the January 2017 announcement of CMC’s first spooler in the United States, which will be located at the company’s new micromill in Durant, Oklahoma. CMC says it 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,” says Tracy Porter, executive vice president, CMC operations. “The ability to produce and sell spooled rebar from both Oklahoma and Arizona will allow us to reach a broader geographic market. The micromill technology lends itself well to spooled rebar production and allows us to offer spools from 1.5 to 4.8 tons.”
Porter adds, “CMC remains committed to supporting and servicing the concrete reinforcing industry with new and innovative products.”
CMC and its subsidiaries manufacture, recycle and market steel and metal products, related materials and services through a network including four electric arc furnace (EAF) minimills, an EAF micromill, a rerolling mill, steel fabrication and processing plants, construction-related product warehouses, metal recycling facilities and marketing and distribution offices in the United States and in strategic international markets.
