NEW YORK — Russel Metals Inc. plans to invest $7 million to upgrade two cut-to-length lines at its B&T Steel division in Stoney Creek, Ontario.

The Toronto-based service center operator will add a stretcher leveler to its light-gauge line in early 2013 and add a synergy hydraulic roller leveler to its heavy-gauge line in mid-2013, the company said.

The stretcher upgrades at B&T Steel are designed to service "customers’ needs for improved flatness tolerances and superior service," John Reid, vice president of operations for service centers, said in the statement.
