Schaeffer Industries, Mira Loma, Calif., has purchased 40 acres of industrial property in McKinney, Texas, and is planning to construct a new steel processing and distribution facility on the site.
The facility will house a high-speed slitting and packaging line and possibly an intermediate-gauge leveling line. This is the company's first expansion since 2000.
Schaeffer currently operates three steel processing and distribution centers in Mira Loma, Stockton, Calif., and Lindon, Utah, under the name Western Flat Rolled Steel & Processing. Schaeffer also owns and operates a structural tube mill, American Tubular Products, and a custom roll forming company, American Rollforming & Manufacturing, both in Lindon.
