PITTSBURGH OmniSource Corp. is planning to open a feeder yard in Benton Charter Township, Mich.
The wholly owned unit of Steel Dynamics Inc. received a special-use permit on April 3 to establish a facility that will accept ferrous, nonferrous and electronic scrap. A pre-crusher is being installed at the yard, and all processing will be done indoors.
This will be the Fort Wayne, Ind.-based companys ninth facility in Michigan, and will be located 38 miles from its South Bend, Ind., shredder plant. OmniSource expects to start with three employees and operate six days per week.
