Cargill to build eighth U.S. steel processing plant in Colorado
Cargill has announced plans to build its eighth U.S. steel processing center to help meet the increasing demands for steel products in the manufacturing and shale oil industries.
Construction of the 60,000-sq.-ft. steel processing and distribution facility is scheduled to begin in early 2014 in Windsor, Colo. The service center is expected to create up to 25 new jobs over the next three years.
The plant will process hot-rolled steel coils into cut-to-length steel sheet and plate products in standard and custom lengths with thicknesses from 16 ga. to 0.5 in. and widths from 48 to 72 in. for customers in 15 western and Midwestern states. It will also serve as a distribution center for RPS® steel product produced at Cargill’s Granite City, Ill., facilities and hot-rolled cut-to-length sheet and plate from its Port of Catoosa, Okla., facility.
