CHICAGO The Wheatland Tube Co. division of JMC Steel
Group Inc. is poised to re-enter the galvanized mechanical tube
The Chicago-based steel tube and pipe maker has named
industry veteran David Devine general manager for fence and
galvanized mechanical products in a move keyed to spearhead the
drive. Devine also will be responsible for sales and product
management for fence products, the company said.
Devines resume includes nearly two decades in the
mechanical tube market, most recently as national sales
manager, energy solutions, at Atkore/Unistrut Construction, JMC
said. He has held various regional and national sales roles,
and over the years has worked with manufacturers, distributors
and contractors to develop and introduce mechanical products
into both the solar and construction industries.
Devines experience in business development, steel
fabrication, and technical and engineering practices should
provide a big help to Sharon, Pa.-based Wheatland Tube
as the company looks to "progressively move forward in the
galvanized mechanical tube market," JMC chief executive officer
Frank Riddick said in a statement.
Wheatland Tube makes a range of steel tubular products,
including standard pipe, drawn-over-mandrel mechanical tubing,
fence framework, sprinkler pipe, oil country tubular goods and
