NEW YORK Ferrolux Metals Co. of Michigan LLC has added a second cold-rolled slitting and inspection line at its Detroit facility.
The Wayne, Mich.-based division of Ferragon Corp., Cleveland, said the new Herr-Voss Stamco Inc. line, a duplicate of an existing line, is aimed at helping it sell further into the automotive and critical finish component manufacturing sector.
Both lines can process exposed and unexposed cold-rolled, hot-dipped and electrogalvanized, aluminized, stainless, prepainted, long-terne and aluminum material. Each line can handle 110,000-pound coils and can slit up to 78-inch-wide, edge-trimmed coils in gauges from 0.015 to 0.156 inch.
"The addition of this second line will allow us to continue to provide our customers with slitting and inspection services that save money and ensure them of a superior-quality product," company president Ed Gonzelez said in a statement.
