CAPTURING STEEL DEMAND IN AN UNCERTAIN MARKET
The steel industry has faced a whirlwind of challenges over the last couple of years—hiatus in construction projects during a worldwide pandemic, supply chain disruptions, and now, a ban on imported products. But robust domestic demand and higher flat-roll steel selling values have created opportunity for some US-based companies.
One greenfield facility in Texas hopes to capture this demand with the latest technology in electric arc furnace steelmaking. Designed to rival existing flat-roll mills and blast furnace models, the new facility has a three-million-ton annual production capacity.
INDUSTRIAL WIRE & CABLE EXPERTS
With many moving parts, this large-scale project needed a dependable supplier that could offer competitive lead times, readily available local inventory, and built-in value-add services. Service Wire’s track record of success, expert industry knowledge, and in-stock wire and cable was the clear winner.
Service Wire’s industrial experts worked with the end user, regional distributors, and contractors to specify and deliver the wire and cable. Pricing was locked in with a cable management program and material was shipped on release to the jobsite.
Service Wire supplied multiple sizes of bare copper, XHHW-2 single conductors, and ServiceDrive® tray cable with self-terminating connectors and termination kits for primary power feeders for underground conduit, tray cable applications, and low voltage drive systems.
