AmRod resumes copper rod output

Keywords: Tags  AmRod, copper, furnace, shutdown, wire, cable, Suzy Waite

NEW YORK — Copper rod producer AmRod Corp. has resumed normal production at its facility in Newark, N.J., after a temporary furnace shutdown, AMM has learned.

Production at the rod mill restarted Jan. 12, a source familiar with the operation told AMM.

"They had to shut it down (because of) furnace problems. I believe it’s back up now," a trader said.

AmRod declined to comment.

The furnace shutdown led to some additional buying "but didn’t result in any big business," a second trader added.

AmRod produces copper rod used for wire and cable products covering all gauges and surface-quality grades. End-markets served include communications, magnet wire, industrial and building, according to the company’s website.
