NEW YORK — Gerdau Long Steel North America is opening an office in Irving, Texas, as the company seeks to further expand into the Texas steel market, a spokeswoman told AMM.

The Irving office will house fabricated rebar detailers, estimators and sales representatives to support the Tampa-based company’s downstream steel facilities in the region.

“The Dallas area is a prime location for expansion, allowing us to provide better service to reinforcing steel customers in the region and further expand our geographic footprint in the state,” the spokeswoman said in an e-mail.

While overall demand for rebar and some other steel long products has been tepid in most regions so far this year, market sources have said business in Texas remains more robust ( amm.com, April 26).
 
Texas consumed more rebar than any other state in 2012, or about 15 percent nationwide, according to the Concrete Reinforcing Steel Institute. 

The Tampa-based company has steel mills in Midlothian and Beaumont, Texas, as well as downstream facilities in Beaumont, Farmersville, Navasota and Carrollton.
