Glassport, Pennsylvania-based Tube City IMS Corp., a leading provider of outsourced industrial services to steel mills globally, has announced that it is changing its corporate name to TMS International Corp.
The company says the name change reflects its growing global presence.
“Our former name, Tube City IMS, represented a consolidation of different organizations, including Tube City Iron and Metal (Tube City) and International Mill Service (IMS),” says Raymond Kalouche, the company’s president and CEO. “Their proud legacies are the foundation of our current success. But as we move into our 10th decade of operations, we believe TMS International better reflects the company’s integrated operations and global status.”
Kalouche says that while the company’s name is changing, its core business practices, values and expectations will not. “We will remain committed to working safely and providing the outstanding service our customers have come to expect. Further, we will continue to focus on growing our global market position by leveraging our business expertise and exercising sound financial discipline,” he comments.
The new name took effect in late February 2016 and is being implemented across all of the company’s products and subsidiaries, according to the firm.
TMS International describes itself as the largest provider of outsourced industrial services to steel mills in North America with a substantial and growing international presence. The company provides mill services at 80 customer sites in 13 countries.
