New Steel Mill Dedicated in Durant

Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin recently helped dedicate Commercial Metals Company’s new micro mill in Durant.

The mill is CMC’s second technologically advanced micro mill that uses a continuous manufacturing process which melts, casts and rolls steel from a single uninterrupted strand, resulting in higher yields and lower energy consumption than the traditional mini mill process.

“We are proud to have CMC join the Durant community,” said Fallin. “This state-of-the-art mill brings great job opportunities for southeast Oklahoma, and is a testament to the business environment offered by the state of Oklahoma.”

Barbara Smith, chairman, president and chief executive officer of CMC, said:  “We are extremely proud to be formally dedicating our second state-of-the-art steel micro mill in Durant.  We look forward to providing our customers with high-quality products combined with CMC’s outstanding service.  A project of this magnitude could not be accomplished without the support of so many, and we thank all our partners who helped us during the construction and commissioning of the mill. We also thank Governor Fallin as well as all the state and local officials who were instrumental in the process.”
