Bull Moose Tube Company ("BMT"), a Caparo Bull Moose subsidiary, announced plans to build a 350,000 ton per year HSS and Sprinkler pipe mill. The mill will be built on Steel Dynamics' new Sinton, Texas flat-rolled campus.
Tom Modrowski, President and CEO of BMT stated: "BMT is excited to build in Sinton, Texas and partner with Steel Dynamics. The new mill will be transformational ranging in size from 4" to 14" square, 5" to 18" round, up to 80 feet in length, and thicknesses ranging from .187" to .750". It will expand our geographic footprint and allow us to better serve customers not only in the Southwest, West Coast and Mexico markets, but across the entire business." Modrowski continued: "Expanding our capacity, capabilities, and flexibility will increase BMT's market share in large HSS sizes and ensure our continued and expanded leadership position in the sprinkler pipe market."
Commenting on the investment in the new mill, Rt. Hon. The Lord Swraj Paul, Caparo Chairman, stated: "The construction of this new plant is an excellent project for BMT, and is a tribute to my late son Angad who was born on this day. His energy and enthusiasm will never be forgotten in taking forward Caparo's business in North America. It also marks the start of what I am sure will be a long association with Steel Dynamics, where CEO Mark Millett and his team have done a tremendous job in establishing their state-of-the-art facility. I look forward to the future growth and success of BMT at our new Texas location."
BMT is partnering with SMS Group for the innovative design, automation, and implementation of the state-of-the-art mill. Company officials said they anticipate an early 2023 mill start-up.
