NEW YORK Michigan
Seamless Tube LLC (MST) has finished building a new
9,600-square-foot pickling house at its South Lyon, Mich.,
facility, the company said Feb. 11.
The $6-million expansion will
allow South Lyon-based MST to produce an additional 450 tons of
product monthly, MST said.
"By reducing material costs and
increasing total production capacity by approximately 13
percent, this investment will serve to expand the capabilities
MST can offer," vice president of operations Les Whitver said
in a statement.
In addition to boosting
capacity, the new facility is also expected to improve the
companys environmental footprint, it said.
The company, which makes carbon
and alloy seamless cold-drawn pipe and tube, had earlier said
that the expansion would be complete by the end of 2012 (

A company spokesman did not
respond to a request for comment.
