SDI Declares Sinton, Texas as the Site for its New Flat Roll Steel Mill

SEATTLE (Scrap Monster): Fort Wayne, Indiana-based Steel Dynamics, Inc. (SDI) announced that it has selected Sinton, Texas as the site for the previously announced EAF flat roll steel mill. The final determination is subject to receipt of necessary environmental and operating permits, which the company expects to receive in Q1 2020. The commencement of plant operations is scheduled for mid-2021.

The estimated required investment is approximately $1.9 billion, which in turn will generate nearly 600 jobs in the region. The annual production capacity of the proposed plant is estimated at around 3 million tons of various flat roll steel products.

The new mill will be located on nearly 2,500 acres land, about two miles east of the intersection of State Highway 89 and U.S. Highway 77 in Sinton. The mill would take only around 100 acres of land. The rest of the area could be occupied by other industrial or manufacturing companies, said the company press release. The location’s proximity to rail access, the major U.S. highway system and the deep-water Port of Corpus Christi provides excellent logistics advantage to the site.

Mark. D. Millett, President and Chief Executive Officer noted that the company is eager to join the Sinton community. He appreciated and thanked the warm welcome and support that it received from the community, Governor Abbott and the State of Texas, as well as local leaders from San Patricio County, the City of Sinton, and the Sinton Independent School Board.
