“This event marks another historic day for CMC, the State of Oklahoma, and the City of Durant,” Joe Alvarado, chairman of the board, president and CEO of CMC. “We believe the addition of a second micro mill to CMC’s portfolio of highly efficient and customer focused production facilities will open new market opportunities and enhance CMC’s position as a leading supplier of long products in the U.S. market. Today would not have been possible without the support of the State of Oklahoma and the City of Durant and we look forward to many years of a very successful relationship.”
CMC’s innovative micro mill technology uses a continuous-continuous manufacturing process that melts, casts and rolls steel from a single uninterrupted strand, producing higher yields and lower energy consumption than the traditional minimill process.
