NEW YORK JMC Steel Group Inc. held an official opening ceremony June 11 for its Sharon Tube Co. subsidiary in Wheatland, Pa.
Chicago-based JMC relaunched the former domestic leader in the drawn-over-mandrel (DOM) market earlier this year (amm.com, April 2).
JMC has invested $40 million in new DOM equipment to double Sharon Tubes capacity and increase its size range. As a result, the pickle and lube line at the facility can now produce 650 tons of steel per day. Sharon specializes in A513 Type 5 and Type 6 DOM tubing and A513 Type 1 electric-resistance weld (ERW) tubing.
Industry veteran William Perrine is heading the new division (amm.com, March 12).
